Then came the devastating and shocking news that one of the boys, Tom Parker, had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Parker, in his characteristically no-nonsense manner, decided to turn a personal tragedy into something more positive and set out to make a documentary for Channel 4 and Stand Up To Cancer titled Tom Parker – Inside My Head both to raise awareness of the tell-tale signs of the disease and to explore new treatments and research.
