Tom Parker hoped to live for years because he bought the Forever Home just months before his death

Tom Parker hoped to live for years and purchased his “permanent home” months before his death.

The wanted star spoke about his plans for the future with his wife Kelsey and children Aurelia, 2, and Buddy, one, in the Channel 4 documentary Inside My Head that aired in November.

The 33-year-old singer married Kelsey in 2018, and the couple visited the house with cameras before moving into the sweet home.

Tom shared his dream of living there for years to come, saying, “This will be our forever home.

“It’s important to me that it’s clear that the kids and Kels have had a nice place to grow up.

“I don’t know what will happen to my health over the next few years, as long as they are fine and they are all fine here, that’s all that matters.

“We’re all going to grow up together here, fingers crossed.”

He added, “I’ve had a hard time to be honest as I’m getting ready to buy a place like this, who would have thought? I’m so proud of myself.”

“This house represents a new beginning for me, I feel this house has been lovingly taken care of. I feel like there is a family growing up here, and I hope that’s what our family will do.”

The wanted star passed away on Wednesday among his close friends and family, 17 months after it was announced he had a brain tumor.

Bolton-born Parker bravely fought glioblastoma, an aggressive type of cancer that can occur in the brain or spinal cord.

He said he filmed “Into My Head” to highlight the rare cancer and raise money for vital research.

He said in the Channel 4 movie, “Maybe it was put here for a reason, and it has to do with glioblastoma.

“I would like to raise awareness, if I can make a positive impact on the treatment of glioblastoma, that is a good idea, right?”

When Tom was diagnosed, he was shocked at the lack of treatment and funding for cancer patients in the UK.

For 20 years, the chemotherapy drug Temozolomide has been the standard NHS treatment for patients with glioblastoma.

But the treatments he received recently at a private facility in Spain included the use of an oxygen machine, massage and a special diet.

Kelsey also spoke about Tom first experiencing symptoms of glioblastoma while on vacation with their daughter Aurelia.

She told Inside My Head: “We went to Norfolk and were in this cottage right on the river, it was a really lovely vacation.

“But I remember Tom was really blunt, snappy about things, and Tom wasn’t as a person. I took Aurelia upstairs and Tom was lying on the bed, he wasn’t looking very well and he just said ‘I feel really sick,’” he said, “My hands are sweaty truly.”

“Then literally within seconds he was having this seizure, he just took over, I was in a panic, the paramedics showed up, they checked him, and they said we’d take him but not pack too many things, he’s out in about four hours.

“I couldn’t stop shaking because obviously I knew something was wrong, but I didn’t know what it would be or how bad it would be.”
