Tom, 32, announced on Instagram Monday that he had been diagnosed with the terminal and inoperable condition – where life expectancy ranges from three to 18 months

Upon hearing the news, Caprice contacted the family after finding the revelation particularly heartbreaking due to her own terrifying experience.

She told The Sun: ‘It was the right thing to do.I don’t know him, but I felt deeply for him because I was there

‘Most people have no idea that brain cancer is the leading cancer killer in people under 40’

She added: ‘We have to find a cure for this evil disease I mean Tom and everyone else in his place don’t give up

‘Giving up is not an option These are not just empty words, they come from my soul You must keep on fighting and living’

Caprice’s tumor, although it turned out to be benign, was growing dangerously quickly and risked leaving her blind and paralyzed

The star was filming the TV series The Jump in Innsbruck in February 2017 when she began to experience strange symptoms, which she first imposed on a difficult diet to learn slalom, skeleton and ski jumping

« I had a pain in my ribs that got worse every time I breathed, » she recalled at the time. « I had headaches that wouldn’t go away, and my vision was getting blurry

‘But I just thought it was because I had hit my head so many times during training’

The program doctor insisted that she went to the hospital, where she underwent x-rays, an ultrasound and a CT scan

‘The neurosurgeon walked in, sat down and said:’ We have the results of your CT scan. You have a brain tumor ‘

Its removal required more than seven hours of risky surgery, which in itself could have had devastating consequences

«  My diagnosis was the scariest time of my life,  » she admitted in an interview in 2018 ‘My first thought was for my two little boys I had no idea what was waiting for me I was afraid to leave them without mom

‘I’m a tough girl, survivor, grafter I’m not dramatic or emotional I’ve made my own money since the second I left high school But for the first time in my life I realized I didn’t have complete control

‘I have to have annual checkups for the next four years to make sure the tumor doesn’t come back’

Growing family: Tom, 32, who is expecting second child with wife Kelsey, said the family were ‘devastated’ but vowed to ‘raise awareness about this terrible disease’

Meanwhile, Tom revealed his final diagnosis on Monday by posting a photo with his wife and their daughter, Aurelia Rose, 15 months

He wrote: ‘Hey guys you know we’ve both been quiet on social media for a few weeks now and it’s time to tell you why

‘There is no easy way to say this but unfortunately I have been diagnosed with a brain tumor and am already in treatment

‘We decided, after a lot of thought, that instead of hiding and trying to keep it a secret, we would do an interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know in our own way

‘We’re going to beat this’: In a moving statement earlier this week, Tom revealed he is on treatment and has vowed to beat the deadly disease

‘We are all absolutely devastated but we will fight this to the end We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and seek all the treatment options available

‘It will be an uphill battle but with everyone’s love and support we will defeat this Tom and Kelsey xxx’

Treatment is usually surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible, followed by a combination of radio and chemotherapy (chemoradiation)

Tom said OK! Magazine, he underwent tests after starting to suffer from unexplained seizures, with doctors giving the family the ‘worst case scenario’ and revealing he had fourth-year glioblastoma while staying in Norwich just six weeks ago

Tom said he was still ‘completely in shock’ at the devastating diagnosis, with Kelsey adding the couple ‘knew’ something was wrong in July ‘but never imagined that he might have a tumor  »

Tom said: ‘I knew something was wrong, but I never expected it to be you never think it will happen to you’

The star visited A&E after having his first seizure, where he complained of having back pain and a mark on his head

Tom was then sent home, but felt like he had a concussion, with the singer being returned to the hospital the following week and put on a waiting list for an MRI

The family went on holiday to Norwich in August as Tom suffered another much worse seizure six weeks after the first

His biggest priority: Tom has vowed to be there for the future of his children by fighting the disease as hard as possible

Kelsey said she and Tom had to ‘push’ a paramedic to come, Tom having an MRI on his arrival

He added that he was told he would be away in four hours, but ended up spending three days there for tests

Discussing when he received his devastating diagnosis, he said: ‘A few days later while we were still on vacation Kelsey was unable to enter due to Covid

‘They pulled the curtain around my bed and said,’ It’s a brain tumor ‘All I could think of was,’ F ***** g hell! ‘I was shocked It’s stage four glioblastoma and they said its terminal It was a lot to deal with on my own I still haven’t treated it

Kelsey said: ‘It was horrible They called me and told me on the phone They said,’ It’s a tumor and it’s the worst case ‘

‘They also told us it was inoperable and what would be the treatment I was in complete condition All I could think of was,’ What is going to happen and what is our life like now?  »

Tom is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy with the aim of shrinking the tumor at King’s College Hospital in London which he says has been «  intense and tiring  »

Kelsey said more tumors will «  likely appear  » and Tom could live with the disease for the rest of his life, undergoing treatment to shrink tumors

The couple added that they didn’t ask about a prognosis, with Kelsey saying it wouldn’t be good for Tom’s state of mind and that he would «  sit down and count the days without living his life  »

Glioblastoma considered to be the most aggressive tumor that can form in the brain Senator John McCain was diagnosed with one in July 2017

Patients have 10% chance of surviving five years after diagnosis, according to figures Average lifespan is between 14 and 16 months

Three in 100,000 adults will develop glioblastoma, says American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS)

It is most often found in men between the ages of 50 and 60, and there is no link between developing glioblastoma and having a history of other cancers

The tumor is made up of a mass of rapidly growing cells in the brain, and in most cases, patients have no family history of the disease

It does not spread to other organs, however, once diagnosed it is almost impossible to target, surgeons say

Unlike other types of brain cancer which are localized more specifically, glioblastoma can occur in any part of the brain

Since the tumor has probably already spread deep in the brain by the time it is diagnosed, the cancerous tissue is incredibly difficult to remove

The surgeon will never remove the tumor, or part of the tumor, unless it will damage the surrounding brain tissue

Dr Babcar Cisse, neurosurgeon at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center, told the Daily Mail Online in July 2017: «  By the time a glioblastoma is diagnosed, microfibers can spread to the rest of the brain that an MRI would not detect

‘So even if the main tumor is removed and the patient receives radiation and chemotherapy, it will come back’

Brain tumors are classified from one to four, based on their growth rate and aggressiveness

Malignant tumors are assigned either a high grade of three or four, while benign tumors are assigned a lower grade one or two

Glioblastoma is often referred to as grade four astrocytoma – another form of brain tumor, according to AANS
