Parker spoke directly to fans – after breaking the news in an OK interview – addressing IG to express his dismay, but also to ask for positivity rather than sadness. He writes: “There is no easy way to say this, but unfortunately I have been diagnosed with a brain tumor and am already in treatment. We have decided, after much thought, that rather than hiding and trying to keep a secret, we would do an interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in their own way. “
TP adds: “We are all absolutely devastated, but we will fight this to the end. We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness about this terrible disease and will research all available treatment options. It’s going to be an uphill battle but with everyone’s love and support, we’re going to beat this. Tom and Kelsey. “
Tom and his wife, Kelsey, have a daughter … and are currently expecting a second child. As to how much time doctors estimate she has left, Kelsey says she asked them not to divulge it … because she was concerned it would set a clock on things and get them down.
Tom is only 32 years old.
