Tom Parker took to Instagram to reassure fans after revealing that his treatment for his brain tumour was taking place at home.
The Wanted singer, 33, shared a photo of a drip stand and machine delivering medication through a line in his living room as he told fans: ‘When treatment comes home.’
He then reassured his followers that the occurrence was nothing to worry about, adding: ‘No need to worry all.
‘We have this treatment every three weeks. It seems to be keeping things stable.’
Tom has been battling a stage four glioblastoma brain tumour for a year but recently received some positive news on his progress.
A recent MRI scan had shown the tumour was ‘under control’ and stable after chemo and radiotherapy, and had previously shown significant reductions in the size.
He told his followers: ‘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 concluded: ‘Thank you for all your love and support over the last 12+ months. Love from Me,Kelsey, Aurelia & Bo.’
As well as treatment for the cancer itself, Tom is also undergoing physiotherapy to regain strength in his left side after it was affected by the tumour.
He showed fans some of the exercises he has to do, including split squats to strengthen his legs.
Tom explained: ‘Getting that left side moving again, rebuilding that lost muscle. This may look easy for most people and it’s such a simple exercise, but for me right now it does exactly what we need. Gets the muscles recruiting again.’
