Tom Parker was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour called glioblastoma in 2020, while his wife Kelsey was pregnant with their second child.
Despite his health condition, the singer recently went on tour with his bandmates from The Wanted. Just last week, the UK boyband posted on Instagram that they’ll be performing again this summer.
Before his untimely death, one of Tom’s last posts on his Instagram was a video about his upcoming book. Tom hopes that his book will inspire everyone to continue living and finding hope in the most difficult situations.
