Tom Parker Boy band singer died from brain tumour this afternoon after a battle with brain cancer. In October 2020, Tom, 33, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), an aggressive and incurable form of the disease.
“We are deeply saddened to learn of Tom’s passing and send our deepest condolences to Kelsey, their children, and all of Tom’s loved ones,” said Hugh Adams, head of stakeholder relations at Brain Tumour Research. His loss will be felt deeply by his Wanted bandmates, fans, and the rest of the pop world. Tom has spoken openly and honestly about the effects of the disease since his diagnosis, helping to raise awareness of the devastation that brain tumors can cause.
“The charity and a number of our supporters were fortunate enough to attend a never-to-be-forgotten The Wanted show at the Royal Albert Hall in London in October 2021, which was documented in the extraordinary and emotional Channel 4 documentary ‘Tom Parker: Inside My Head.’ We also met Tom at Westminster, where he spoke at the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Brain Tumours (APPGBT) in December, establishing himself as a passionate advocate for more brain tumor research.”
Tom’s tragic death highlights the fact that brain tumors kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer, yet only 1% of national cancer research funding has been dedicated to this devastating disease in the past. We will remember Tom for his passion, intelligence, eloquence, and determination in the face of adversity, and we will remember him as we work toward our goal of finding a cure for all types of brain tumors.
