Who is Tom Parker's wife? Kelsey vows to be his 'strength' after cancer diagnosis
In a recently released documentary, singing sensation Tom Parker became emotional while talking about his obsession with death ever since he was diagnosed with cancer. Parker, 33, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and told he had only 18 months to live when it was discovered he had an inoperable brain tumour in 2020. The star, however, now has higher chances of beating the illness, having undergone six rounds of chemotherapy and 30 radiotherapy sessions.
"Scared is an understatement. I was petrified," Parker said in the documentary 'Inside my Head'. "It's so hard to think about the future, because I genuinely don't know what it holds any more." Amid his treatment, he was "unable to walk around the kitchen," he said in the documentary.

"It’s been an emotional few months for me and my family. But I’m determined to both fight the disease and the terrible situation of the chronically low level of research that goes towards finding a cure and treatment for glioblastoma," Parker said. "In this documentary, as well as exploring the medical and human aspects of this disease, I am determined to raise awareness and raise as much money as we can through the concert to help advance crucial cancer research and develop new treatments.”
Parker's wife, Kelsey Parker, admitted that she broke down in tears as she watched the documentary, and promised to 'be his strength always'. After the documentary aired, Kelsey took to Instagram and posted a story of herself and Tom with their hands clasped together.
"Yeah look my eyes are still puffy! Thank you for all your love, your messages and support. I was going to get back to you all. You've been amazing," Kelsey said in the documentary.
