The Wanted’s singer left fighting for his life after brain tumour diagnosis

Sad news for friends, family & fans of The Wanted’s Tom Parker as the singer is left fighting for his after a terminal brain tumour diagnosis.

TOM PARKER, the 32-year-old singer of boyband The Wanted, is understandably devastated after being given the news that he has stage four glioblastoma.

The father-of-one spoke to OK! Magazine, emotionally stating: “I’m still in complete shock, it’s so much to take in.”

The singer suffered a seizure in July, then six weeks later he had another more serious seizure and was rushed to hospital.

Tom, who has a 15-month-old daughter, Aurelia, is expecting another child wife Kelly after they made the announcement of their pregnancy back in May, confirming it was to be a boy in June.

Tom told his fans that he had already begun his chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment in a heartbreaking post on social media platform Instagram.

The message read: “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.”
