He was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma in October 2020, and given just 12 months to live by doctors.

In September 2021, 11 months on from his diagnosis, Tom sang at the Stand Up 2 Cancer show at the Royal Albert Hall and even embarked on a Greatest Hits tour with his bandmates when the tumour was confirmed as ‘stable’ in November.

But Tom’s condition deteriorated rapidly once the tour came to an end earlier this year.

She went on to thank everyone who has cared for Tom during his illness, adding that he fought the disease until the very end.

Net verlede maand, Tom announced he had written a book, Hope: My Inspirational Journey, about ‘carrying on against all odds’. It will be published in July.

After his death was announced the band posted a joint tribute to the star, while on Thursday, Siva Kaneswaran shared his own message.

Siva posted a video of The Wanted bandmates hugging on stage with the caption ‘we’ll always be there for you brother,’ 24 hours after Tom passed away with his bandmates by his side.








Siva used the band’s 2011 single Gold Forever on the video. The track has now reached number one on iTunes UK in the day since Parker’s death following a campaign from fans.

The video showed Siva and his bandmates embracing Tom on stage during The Wanted charity gig last year, with Siva writing in the caption:

Dit is mal, want ek het my eerste universiteitstoernooi daardie week gewen en ons het sedertdien redelik goed gevaar & Forever ❤️ Our Tommy boy. Say my name like it’s the last time, Live today like its your last night, We want to cry but we know its alright, Cause I’m with you and your with me’.

Fans have been campaigning for The Wanted’s Red Nose Day single Gold Forever to reach number one in honour of Tom.
