The Wanted singer Tom Parker released an emotional message for his fans in which he announced he is ‘over the moon’ that his brain tumour is under control
Tom Parker has revealed the brilliant news that his brain tumour is “under control” following his latest MRI scan.
The Wanted star, 33, was diagnosed with a stage four glioblastoma last year and had feared the worst at stages of his treatment.
However, he was given the amazing news earlier in the week after routine scan as part of his treatment that he is stable.
He took to Instagram to share the emotional news with his fans. He wrote: “I’m sat here with tears in my eyes as I tell you. We’ve got my brain tumour under control.
“We had the results from my latest scan…and I’m delighted to say it is STABLE. Such a mix of emotions. We couldn’t ask for any more really at this point; a year or so in to this journey.
“Honestly over the moon. We can sleep a little easier tonight.”
He signed off his post: “Thank you for all your love and support over the last 12+ months. Love from Me,Kelsey, Aurelia & Bo.”
Alongside the heartfelt words, Tom shared a snap of himself with his wife Kelsey Hardwick and their children, daughter Aurelia, two, and one-year-old son Bodhi.
He was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in September last year after he suffered a seizure.
He broke down while talking about his tumour on his Channel 4 documentary, Inside My Head, which aired last month.
Tom revealed that his condition had caused him to suffer from short-term memory loss and described how he spent three months almost entirely in bed.
On the doc, he said: “It’s so hard to think about the future, I don’t want to know.
“I don’t think you know how you feel about death until you’re faced with it. Am I going to die? That’s the most important question… I want to stick around – and be the best version I can!”
He has undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy during his intense treatment.
In a recent interview with The Sun, the singer said that he was hoping to be cancer-free by March despite always being classed as terminal.
“They give you 12 to 18 months of survival. But that’s the general statistics. Everyone we’ve spoken to has been way, way beyond that.”
