The wife of Tom Parker, a member of the band The Wanted, announced that the artist died last Wednesday, after having fought a hard battle since he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in 2020.
“It is with a broken heart that we confirm that Tom passed away peacefully earlier today with his entire family by his side. Our hearts are broken, Tom was the center of our world and we can’t imagine life without his infectious smile and energetic presence,” her widow wrote in a brief Instagram statement.
“We are truly grateful for all the love and support you have shown, and ask that you join us now to ensure that Tom’s light continues to shine for his beautiful children. Thank you to those who have supported in the care of him at all times, “added Kelsey.
The singer was expecting his second child, who is now 18 months old, when he was diagnosed with a grade IV glioblastoma, and he also has another 2-year-old daughter with his wife.
The two decided to be very honest from the start about the seriousness of the situation and Kelsey has now added that Tom kept the promise he made then: to fight to the end.
“I will always be proud of you,” she assured him.
The news of his death has been a blow to all his fans because in October 2021 he was still very optimistic and even dared to venture that he could begin to overcome the disease in five months despite initially being assured that the median survival in cases like his was just over a year.
A few days ago he also announced that he was working on a memoir that he hoped would be available sometime next summer.
The singer was part of the boyband The Wanted, authors of the musical hits Glad You Came, We Own The Night, among others.
