Kris Aquino Says Son Josh Will Undergo Stem Cell TherapyPart of the reason why controversial TV host-actress Kris Aquino will take a leave of absence from her showbiz commitments this coming June is because her son, Josh, will be undergoing stem cell therapy in Singapore.
Aquino revealed this tidbit of information to Dindo Balares, the entertainment editor of Balita.
He also runs the column "Prangkahan" on the said newspaper.
“Ipapagamot ko kasi through stem-cell therapy sa Singapore this June si Josh," Aquino had said.
She was persuaded to let Josh undergo stem cell therapy because of its success in treating a friend's child.
She said her friend’s child couldn't communicate well but after the therapy, there has been major improvements.
Aquino has earlier admitted that Josh is a "special child" or the term used for people who has autism.
“Gusto kong i-try. Kasi, ayokong maisip pagdating ng araw na may means naman ako to avail the treatment pero hindi ko ginawa.”
“Sa mother kasi kukunin ang gagamiting biological cell. E, di ba, ang dami-dami kong allergy kapag nagpapa-hospital ako?"
Josh is Aquino's son with actor Phillip Salvador.
Aquino earlier resigned from ABS-CBN because of the controversy surrounding her and ex-husband James Yap.
She said she wanted to focus on her kids--Josh and Bimby.
The management of ABS-CBN didn't allow her to resign and instead, persuaded her to just take a leave of absence.
She will be temporarily gone from her shows starting June.
