0

One of The Wanted singers, Tom Parker, recently revealed in his new documentary ‘Tom Parker: Inside My Head’ that he has an aggressive type of cancer.

In Channel 4’s new documentary to benefit the charity program ‘Stand Up To Cancer’, Parker broke down in tears as he confessed how he felt after being diagnosed by the doctor, according to The Daily Star.

During his visit to the hospital alone, the doctor told Parker he had grade four glioblastoma, for which he said, “the worst brain cancer you can have.”

The documentary showed the celeb hosting a fundraising concert to raise awareness and funds for people suffering from the same diagnosis as his.

Parker also highlighted the lack of experimental drugs available at the National Health Service, where he wanted everyone to have access and afford the latest cutting-edge treatments.

Parker’s response to his recent status

From what was reported by the said source, his inoperable tumor requires extensive radiation treatment as well as chemotherapy. The star also had access to new experimental drugs and immunotherapy from private healthcare, for which they were able to shrink his brain tumor.

The ‘Glad You Came’ singer said, “Scared is an understatement. I was petrified.” He further stated that he couldn’t stop thinking about death and added that it was “the honest truth”. The documentary, later, showed Parker lying on his bed, crying on his hands, saying, “It’s so hard to think about the future, because I really don’t know what’s in store anymore.”

More of the singer’s pains as the cancer is on his body, he admitted he struggled to use his hands and legs. On top of that, his short-term memory also suffers, which he said, “It’s terrible, it’s driving me crazy.”

The 32-year-old also described his experience with the general glioblastoma prognosis as “not amazing”. He explained: “I don’t know if you will really know how you feel about death until you face it.”

And The Sun’s report confirmed that the singer had undergone six rounds of chemotherapy and 30 sessions of radiotherapy which convinced him he could beat his terminal illness in five months, in March 2022.


The editor also mentioned that Parker discovered his illness in 2020, weeks before his wife was due to give birth to their second child, Bodhi.
