Tom Parker has revealed he has plenty to celebrate after a scan on his birthday showed a “slight reduction” in his brain tumour.
The Wanted singer – who revealed last year that he had been diagnosed with an inoperable tumour – had an MRI on Wednesday, which was his 33rd birthday.
He has now updated fans on social media, saying that after a couple of days of “dread and worry” he had some good news and was feeling very grateful.
Sharing a picture on Instagram showing him in a studio, Parker wrote: “Ok… here goes.
“The last couple of days have been filled with dread and worry but I’m pleased to announce that the results of yesterday’s scan (lovely birthday present), are stable with a slight reduction in the tumour if anything.
“I can’t tell you how grateful I am to receive this news."
“We left it a little longer between scans this time just to give time for the medication to work etc but overall a great day," he added.
The dad-of-two also thanked his healthcare team for their support.
“You are truly wonderful,” he said.
“And thank you all you lovely people out there sending love and support. It really is so appreciated.
“Time to celebrate.”
The star shared in October 2020 that he had been diagnosed with “inoperable” stage-four glioblastoma while his wife was pregnant with their second child.
Earlier this year he said that, following treatment, he had been told there had been a significant reduction in the size of his tumour.
