The Wanted singer Tom Parker has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.
The 32-year-old revealed in an Instagram post on Monday but vows to “fight this all the way”.
In a detailed post on Instagram, Parker while sharing a photo along with Parker 1-year-old daughter Aurelia and wife Hardwick, said, “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 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.”
“We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way,” the British singer wrote.
In an interview with OK! magazine, Parker shared that he has a grade four glioblastoma tumor.
Parker revealed that he was diagnosed six weeks ago after experiencing seizures.
“They pulled the curtain around my bed and said, ‘It’s a brain tumor.’ All I could think was, ‘F–king hell!’ I was in shock. It’s stage four glioblastoma and they’ve said it’s terminal,” Parker told the outlet (via the UK’s Guardian). “It was a lot to deal with by myself. I still haven’t processed it.”
