"SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION," the singer wrote.

"These are the words I received today and I can't stop saying them over and over again.

"I had an MRI scan on Tuesday and my results today were a significant reduction to the tumour and I am responding well to treatment. Everyday I'm keeping on the fight to shrink this b*****d!"

Expressing gratitude to everyone who's helped him along the way, Parker continued: "I can't thank our wonderful NHS enough. You're all having a tough time out there but we appreciate the work you are all doing on the front line.

The Wanted's Tom Parker Shares Devastating Terminal Brain Tumour Diagnosis

published at3 months ago

"To everyone on here - your love, light and positivity have inspired me. Every message has not been unnoticed they have given me so much strength.

"This journey is a rollercoaster that's for sure. Today is a f***ing good day."

Speaking to OK! Magazine last autumn, Parker said he was in 'complete shock' following the devastating diagnosis.

He said: "I knew something wasn't right, but I never expected it to be this. You never think this will happen to you."

Parker said he'd visited hospital in Norwich while on holiday, explaining: "They pulled the curtain around my bed and said, 'It's a brain tumour.' All I could think was, 'F***ing hell!' I was in shock. It's stage four glioblastoma and they've said its terminal. It was a lot to deal with by myself. I still haven't processed it."

He vowed not to give up, adding that he was going to 'fight' the brain tumour and was in the process of 'exploring alternative treatments and looking at clinical trials both here and abroad'.

"There are so many stories of people who were given a bad prognosis and are still here five, 10, even 15 years later. We're going to fight this all the way," he added.
