Amani Liaquat, who had the same brain cancer as Tom Parker from The Wanted, has unfortunately passed away

Unfortunately, a young woman linked to wanted star Tom Parker has died after being diagnosed with the same brain tumor.

Amani Liaqat, a 23-year-old master’s student, was diagnosed with grade 4 glioblastoma multiforme, a rapidly growing and sinister brain cancer.

After receiving the shocking diagnosis, Amani, of Luton in Bedfordshire, started a campaign and fundraiser with Leicestershire Live reports for brain tumor research.

Her social media profile attracted strong interest and led to her friendship with wanted star Tom, who has also been diagnosed with a 4 GBM score.

Amani’s family decided to get a life-prolonging treatment from Germany and with the help of relatives, friends and strangers, she raised more than £100,000 in 24 hours.

Amani’s condition has deteriorated significantly since she was informed that there were no other treatment options available in November.

Her parents announced her death yesterday morning, February 21.

Khuram, Amani’s father, wrote on his Twitter account @Khuram1972: “Our beautiful daughter Amani breathed her last this morning at 12.30 am.

“I fought GBM4 for 22 months but unfortunately without a proper investment, didn’t stand a chance.

“She was my hero and she was the coolest ambassador for brain tumor research.

“I love you forever Amani!”

Amani, a law graduate with first class honors, has been a beloved supporter of brain tumor research and an integral part of the Brain Tumor Charitable Petition and Stop the Destruction campaigns.

The brave young woman has also done several fundraising and campaigning activities, including organizing the first Hope March in Luton in September and creating the Fight4Hope fundraising group.

Thousands of people who tuned in to her Chat2Amani broadcast, hosted by the Fight4Amani YouTube channel, followed her on her brain tumor journey, as she explored issues like loneliness and faith and interviewed Tom in one episode.

Just last week, Amani received her MSc in Applied Social Care with distinction from the University of Bedfordshire.

A special ceremony was held at her home last Tuesday (February 15), attended by university staff and Amani’s closest family members.

The news was met with an outpouring of praise on social media, including many from those within the brain tumor community who were inspired by Amani’s unwavering strength and courage.

Hugh Adams, Head of Stakeholder Relations for Brain Tumor Research, said: “This tragic news has had a huge impact on those of us in Brain Tumor Research who have been honored to know Amani and her extraordinary family.

Amani’s story touched everyone who heard it, and that she was willing to share so much of herself with others speaks volumes about her personality.
