‘Does it matter if I’m going to die?’ Tom Parker discusses his cancer treatment’s “darkest days.”
TOM PARKER has opened up about how he faced with some of his cancer treatment’s “darkest days.”
Tom Parker, the 33-year-old star of The Wanted, will star in a new documentary called Inside My Head, which is about his cancer diagnosis. Last year, the singer was diagnosed with a brain tumor and has been battling it with chemotherapy and radiation ever since.
Tom, on the other hand, revealed in a new interview that this was due to “bad days.”
The artist described how he used to have to go from his home in Kent to Guy’s Hospital in London for radiation sessions on a daily basis.
He’d only be able to get away from them on weekends.
During this arduous period, he lost a third of his body weight, dropping to under eight stone.
“Those were the saddest days of my life,” Tom added.
“It was horrible going up there and lying beneath those radiation machines. It’s a disaster. It’s a little unsettling.
“You’re thinking to yourself, ‘Is this helping?’ ‘Does it make a difference?’ ‘Does it make sense for me to accomplish something if I’m going to die?’ “I’m not going to put myself through this.” The chemo, according to the Wanted actor, was also “awful.”
“I wouldn’t want it on anyone,” he told The Sun.
Tom and his 31-year-old wife Kelsey Parker have a young family.
Aurelia, two, and Bodhi, 11 months, are the couple’s two young children.
Tom has expressed his optimism for the future after being told his brain tumor was inoperable.
The celebrity said he was feeling “good” during an appearance on This Morning on Thursday.
“Five months ago, I wouldn’t have been able to do this,” he remarked.
“I’m much more self-assured and in command of my emotions… I’d have been a sobbing wreck.
“I’m in a great mood right now. I’m considering having a second [baby]!” In his interview with The Sun, he also stated that his goal is to be cancer-free by March.
Tom reunited with his Wanted bandmates for a special concert recently.
The band reunited a few weeks ago to play with Liam Payne and Ed Sheeran to raise money for charity.
The focus of Tom’s film tonight will be on how he pulled it off.
