Tom Parker from The Wanted is bravely dealing with his illness … confined for a time to a wheelchair after undergoing treatment for brain cancer.
His bandmate, Max George, posted this pic of Tom Friday in a wheelchair. Max captioned the pic of Tom, who looked chill, “I mean … come on😍.”
Tom was diagnosed back in October 2020, with stage 4 glioblastoma. Last year he say the cancer is being held at bay.
Tom had been getting treatments in Spain at a clinic that specializes in this type of cancer. The treatment lasted 3 weeks, and he was able to rejoin the band last month in an emotional reunion. He also appeared on stage at a U.K. concert and performed on a gold throne!
Max posted some pics of Tom after his return from Spain.
The Wanted has really stepped up … pledging that one pound for every ticket sold will go to brain cancer research.
Good on The Wanted, and the best to Tom.
