TOM Parker’s wife Kelsey has revealed The Wanted star’s terminal brain tumour is shrinking.
The brave mum of two appeared on Loose Women today and delighted viewers when she said her husband’s latest scan had showed his cancer is “stable”.
Asked by host Ruth Langsford about Tom’s condition, she said “Tom is doing really well. We had a meeting last Wednesday and he’s just had another stable scan.
“We’ve had radiotherapy, chemotherapy, he had a bit of a break there because he had a bit of a dodgy liver. And he’s just started the second round of chemo.
“The tumour has shrunk. We’ve had a significant reduction, we were all in tears when we got that news in January and we couldn’t believe it. We were all crying and so overwhelmed.”
Panelist Coleen Nolan spoke about her sister Linda, 61, who has terminal breast cancer, and asked Kelsey how she has coped with the though of losing Tom.
She told Kelsey: “I know with my sister who has incurable cancer it is hard. Do you feel any fear?”
And she explained: “Tom had lost so much weight he wasn’t eating, he went down to eight and a half stone. It was more the frustration it made me really upset and I found it hard to be positive. But now after January, I know we are on this roller coaster and I can feel more positive.”
Advising viewers on how to handle battling cancer, she added: “Look forward, don’t look back. You’re on a roller coaster and just ride it because you get one good day then three bad days, but then another good day. So just keep looking forward.
