The Wanted’s Tom Parker reflects on how far he’s come after positive MRI as he aims to beat brain tumour entirely

Tom Parker has taken to Instagram to thank fans for the overwhelming support after revealing he had had a positive MRI result.

The Wanted star, 33, had shared that his stage four glioblastoma brain tumour was ‘under control’, with his latest scan this week showing that it was stable.

After sharing the brilliant news with his followers, Tom later returned to social media to reflect on how far he has come in a year since being diagnosed.

He said on his Instagram Story: ‘Hello all, I just wanted to come and say I’m honestly blown away by the response really, and just over the moon with our results and stuff.

‘So thank you to all our team and everyone involved in getting us to this point. If you’d asked me a year ago if we’d have been at stable, I’d have been like “No way”.

‘But the fact that we’ve got there, I’m proud of myself, proud of all our team, proud of everyone.’

He then shared an image of himself at the start of his battle, after losing his hair due to chemo and radiotherapy, as well as now, when he is on the road to recovery.

Tom added: ‘We keep going until we’re ND (no evidence of disease).’

While the prognosis for a glioblastoma is usually 12-18 months after diagnosis, Tom previously revealed that a scan had shown a significant reduction in his tumour, which was diagnosed over a year ago.

He has been working to raise funds for brain tumour research, including with his concert In My Head at the Royal Albert Hall in September, in order to help others get access to the best treatments after discovering that very little of cancer research funding goes towards glioblastomas.
