'Not every day is positive': Tom Parker's wife Kelsey pens heartfelt message on World Mental Health Day
LONDON, UK: On World Mental Health Day, late singer Tom Parker's wife Kelsey took to Instagram and penned down a touching message. Mentioning that "not every day is positive," she urged her followers to reach out in case they suffered from mental health issues. Kelsey wrote, ''Tom called us #PostiveParkers and this will forever be what we are. But today on #WorldMentalHealthDay it's important to say that not every day is positive; some days are a lot harder than others. I have learnt to take it day by day, moment by moment. That's all we can do... If you're struggling don't try to hide, confide in those close to you and get any help you need.''
"I have the kids who keep me going and have many friends & family members who check in on me regularly and lift me up. If you're struggling don't try to hide, confide in those close to you and get any help you need,'' she wrote. Parker succumbed to glioblastoma brain cancer when he was just 33 on March 31. Earlier, Kelsey had revealed that she will front an ITV documentary on how she was coping with the grief after the singer's loss.
Speaking on her upcoming documentary, she said, ''I am delighted to share with you that 'Kelsey Parker: Life After Tom' will be on your screens later this year on ITV. A six part observational documentary following me and my family over the last six months since Tom's death. Obviously a very difficult film to make but one that I'm incredibly proud of. We are still in the middle of filming and it's been a rollercoaster ride but I can't thank the team enough for believing in me to share my story, to continue Tom's work and cement his legacy and to hopefully help others."
However, these are not the only instances when Kelsey has spoken of Parker on social media. in September, six months after his death, Kelsey wrote a heartwarming message for her husband on Instagram. She wrote, ''Another day, another milestone, 6 months to the day since we lost Tom but you're still here @tomparkerofficial in everything we do.''
Parker was a part of the boy band 'The Wanted. He had been married to actor and vlogger Kelsey for three years before he died. Parker and Kelsey met in a nightclub in 2009 and got married two years later.
