The Wanted's Tom Parker Reveals He Has a Brain Tumor, Bandmates React to the News

Tom Parker has revealed some heartbreaking news.

The 32-year-old former The Wanted band member has an inoperable brain tumor, and he’s undergoing treatment.

“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,” he wrote on Instagram. “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,” Tom continued.

“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”

Tom and his wife Kelsey, who is pregnant with their second child, spoke with OK! Magazine UK and shared that he has a “stage four glioblastoma and they’ve said it’s terminal.”

Tom‘s former bandmates have commented on his Instagram and shared their own posts sending their love and support to their friend.

“You’ve always been one in a million. 🙄 I love you Tom, let’s get popping 💪,” Jay McGuiness commented.

“❤️Let’s do this lad❤️love you buddy🙏🏼,” Siva Kaneswaran wrote.
