In October 2020, The Wanted singer had received news of being effected by glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer. Earlier, Tom has admitted that his world was turned upside down after he was told he has a stage four brain tumour. Tom Parker had shared the same on Instagram, along with a picture of himself taken just a couple of days before he received his terminal diagnosis.
Last month, Tom shared a glimpse of his trip to London to receive another ‘very long’ day of treatment for his terminal brain tumour. The singer documented his day on Instagram Stories and admitted that he’s grateful to be still receiving treatment despite the challenges (owing to COVID-19).
Get well soon, Tom Parker.
