Former The Wanted band member Tom Parker has shared a picture of him and his wife Kelsey to mark one year since his brain tumour diagnosis.
Tom was told he had an inoperable tumour last summer after having several unexplained seizures.
Kelsey was pregnant with their second child at the time of Tom’s diagnosis, and the pair have since welcomed son, Bodi. The pair also share two year old daughter Aurelia together.
While the average life expectancy for someone with a grade four glioblastoma like Tom’s ranges from three to 18 months from diagnosis, a year on from the harrowing news, Tom continues to battle on.
By means of a miracle, over the last year Tom, 33, has seen his tumour shrink, and appears to have responded well to his treatment.
Earlier this month, he announced that a recent scan showed that the tumour had shrunk. Tom described the scan as "stable with a slight reduction in the tumour if anything".
Now, to mark a year since his devastating diagnosis, he has shared a photograph of Kelsey and himself where he said he "couldn’t love [her] any more".
Tom wrote: “A year of total madness!!! 1 year ago today I had my first ever seizure which ultimately led to the discovery of a stage 4 brain tumour scariest time of our lives but we’re here a year down the line. I couldn’t love you any more.”
In the sweet snap, Kelsey can be seen wearing a gingham print top and sunglasses while sitting next to her husband, as Tom looks at her adoringly.
Kelsey also marked the occasion by sharing a similar photo. The mum-of-two wrote alongside it: “A year ago today our life changed forever. Through everything we will always have each other. Me and you against the world.”

People have since shared their support for the couple in the comment section of their heartfelt posts.
Singer Pixie Lott commented several heart emojis on Kelsey’s picture, while another person branded her and Tom as "the strongest couple [they] know".
Someone else wrote: “Still here and still fighting!”, as someone else described the Parkers as an "amazing family".
Meanwhile, one of Tom’s 214,000 followers wrote on his post: “Tom, I think about ya all the time! I was diagnosed in july 2020 with two types of cancer myself (myxoid liposarcoma and renal cell carcinoma).”
“The beginning is the scariest part, but I'm glad you’re navigating it now and always finding a way to spread positivity. Your family is the cutest!” they continued.
