Tom Parker, who gained fame because of his band ‘The Wanted’, has been struggling with an inoperable brain tumor.
Singer Tom Parker is one of the members of the boy band ‘The Wanted’ in the early 2010s. He reached number one with the singles All Time Low and Glad You Came.
The 32-year-old singer said he was “still in shock” after being told he had a stage 4 glioblastoma six weeks ago.
“I knew something wasn’t right, but I never expected it to be this.”
However, the singer is motivated enough as he said to a magazine that he would remain positive.” I’m going to be here,” he added. “I’m going to fight this.”
He took to Instagram and shared his thoughts, “We are gonna fight this all the way. We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options.”

Hey guys, you know that we’ve both been quiet on social media for a few weeks and it’s time to tell you why. There’s no easy way to say this but I’ve sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and I’m already undergoing treatment. We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way. We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way. We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options. It’s gonna be a tough battle but with everyone’s love and support we are going to beat this. Tom and Kelsey xxx
