Ed Sheeran Paid Tom Parker’s Medical Bills As He Battled Brain Cancer

Two months after his death, The Wanted’s Tom Parker is publicly thanking Ed Sheeran for paying his medical bills while he battled brain cancer.

On Saturday, (May 14th), The Sun published an excerpt from Parker’s memoir, Hope, that read, “I’ve never publicly said this before (and he’ll probably be mad that I’m doing it now) but Ed is a very special man. He even helped out with my medical bills when I was seeking other treatment options and having private immunotherapy.”

The “Glad You Came” singer added that Sheeran’s actions “meant the world” to him and his wife.

In October 2020, Tom announced that he had been diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma. He died less than two years later, on March 30th, at the age of 33.
