TOM PARKER from the British band THE WANTED announced yesterday that he has an inoperable brain tumor.

In an Instagram post, he said, quote, “We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way.  We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options.

“It’s gonna be a tough battle but with everyone’s love and support we are going to beat this.”

In an interview with “OK” magazine, Parker said he has stage four glioblastoma, and doctors told him it’s terminal.

Parker and his wife are currently expecting their second child.  The Wanted went on indefinite hiatus in 2014, so the members could pursue their own projects.  Parker is only 32.
