As a single parent raising her only son Quentin who has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Candy Pangilinan could not have been any prouder to share her son’s latest academic achievement in her Instagram post last June 30. He just graduated from the 10th grade.
The 49-year-old actress made sure to thank everyone that contributed to her son’s newest milestone this year.
