THE Wanted’s Tom Parker was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.
The devastated singer, 32, father of a 15-month-old daughter and another baby on the way, has stage 4 glioblastoma.
In an interview with OK! In the magazine, the emotional star said, “I am still completely shocked, there is so much to see.”
His wife, Kelsey, who is 36 weeks pregnant, said, “It’s been a crazy six weeks. We had an inkling that something was wrong in July, but we could never have imagined it. ”
Tom said the diagnosis didn’t feel real, adding, “I knew something was wrong, but I never expected it to be. You never think that will happen to you. ”
The average life expectancy for his disease is between three months and 18 months from the time of diagnosis.
Tom decided not to ask for a prognosis and insists that he will beat the disease in order to have a future with his children.
He said, “I’ll be here, I’ll fight this.”
The star suffered a seizure in July and made her way to A&E, where she was placed on a waiting list for an MRI scan.
Six weeks later, while on a family trip to Norwich, he had another more serious attack and was hospitalized.
Kelsey was banned from being by his side because of coronavirus rules, and Tom was alone when he was told he had stage 4 glioblastoma.
The disease is the most common high-grade cancerous primary brain tumor in adults.
It starts in the brain and often spreads quickly. The aggressive cancer is difficult to treat and resistant to treatment because the cells in the tumor are not all of the same type.
This morning Tom posted a heartbreaking message on Instagram telling fans that he’s already started his six-week chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Was ist Glioblastoma multiforme?
These are the most invasive types of glial tumors that grow rapidly and often spread to nearby brain tissue.
In adults, GBM most commonly occurs in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain.
It is an extremely rare but devastating brain tumor that typically leads to death in the first 15 months after diagnosis.
Symptoms vary depending on the location of the brain tumor, but can include:
- Persistent headache
- Double or blurred vision
- Changes in mood and personality
- Changes in thinking and learning skills
- New seizure
- Difficulty speaking with a gradual onset
It can be diagnosed through CT and MRI scans.
The first treatment is typically surgery, followed by radiation and chemotherapy.
The main goal of surgery is to remove as much of the tumor as possible without injuring the surrounding normal brain tissue, which is needed for normal neurological function.

The post read, “Hey guys, you know we’ve both been quiet on social media for a couple of weeks and it’s time to tell you why.
“There is no easy way to say this, but unfortunately I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and I am already being treated.
“After much deliberation, we decided, instead of going into hiding and trying to keep it a secret, to have an interview in which we can explain all the details and inform everyone of the facts in our own way.

“We are all absolutely devastated, but we will fight it all the way. We do not want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatments.
“It will be an uphill battle, but with the love and support of everyone we will beat this. Tom and Kelsey xxx. ”
It sparked an influx of supportive messages from disgruntled fans.
One wrote: “Oh my god, I am sending all the love I can.”
Another shared, “Send so much love to yourself and your family. ❣️. ”
A third commented: “Send you love and certainty ????????????????.”
The 32-year-old participated in the ITV fundraiser The Real Full Monty in 2018.
He appeared alongside James Argent of Towie, EastEnders actor John Partridge, and television presenter Jeff Brazier.
And Arg said: “We love you, Tom! We have this brother, no doubt! ”
Tom’s daughter Aurelia was born 15 months ago, and he and Kelsey announced that baby number two would be on their way back in May.
The couple became engaged in 2016 and married in a romantic ceremony on the grounds of Ridge Farm in Surrey, England in July 2018, surrounded by family and closest friends.
Max George and Jay McGuinness from The Wanted were his ushers. Tom and Kelsey said his bandmates have been incredibly supportive since they were made aware of his illness.
The Wanted rose to fame in 2010 when their first single, All Time Low, topped the charts.
They had nine other top 10s, including another number one in 2011 with Glad You Came.
It started its career in the difficult US market and reached number three on the Billboard charts.
However, after instantly gaining fame, album sales cooled off at the time of their third Word Of Mouth release in 2013.
Not even a much-touted E! Reality series – produced by Ryan Seacrest and with a cameo by Lindsay Lohan – could change their fortunes.
They took a break in 2014 to focus on solo projects.
