After Louis Tomlinson's mother, Johannah Deakin, passed away at the age of 43 after battling leukemia, the former 'One Direction' singer's father was diagnosed with liver cancer, at the age of 49.
Tragically, Troy Austin, had to have a four-hour long operation which removed a tumour, and will hopefully save Louis' father's life.
Following the procedure, Troy said;
"The staff have been brilliant. The doctors are amazing and the nurses are hilarious; they really lift your spirits every day."
He also praised the NHS' service and blamed his tumour on drinking and smoking.
