Katie Price posts emotional tribute to terminally ill mum Amy and says ‘words can’t express how much I love her’
KATIE Price has shared a rare snap with her brother and sister to express her love for her terminally ill mum Amy.
The 42-year-old is raising awareness for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis – the life-limiting condition her mum, 68, suffers from.
Katie, brother Danny and sister Sophie all wore matching T-shirts as they smiled next to Amy.
Katie wrote: "There are no words to express the love that my brother, sister @sophie_pricey and I have for our mum. As you know, this is something that's very close to my heart because my mum suffers from this condition.
"This week is IPFweek. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a lung condition that scars your lungs and reduces the efficiency of your breathing. Approximately 6500 people are diagnosed with IPF every year.
"The @britishlungfoundation is asking for your support to help fund vital research and offer those with IPF hope for the future."
Another post saw Katie hugging her mum in a throwback snap taken in Spain.
Katie's son Junior commented on the sweet pics: "Love you nan ❤️."
In July Katie revealed her mum Amy was struggling to breathe after moving to Spain to help her lung condition.
She shared the devastating news in a YouTube video with her mum.
The mother-of-five explained: "She's getting a bit worse with her breathing so it's better for her to be out here than it is in England.
"At Christmas I was watching you, we all were, and you were sitting there like this [takes deep breaths]."
Katie's daughter Princess gave her nan a hug, before Amy said: "I probably don't notice it because I do it all the time."
And the reality star then told how her mum's condition fluctuates.
She said: "My dad's been over and said 'your mum's not good. She's having really good days, but then she's having really bad days.'"
Amy was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2017.
The illness causes scarring to the lungs which reduces the sufferer's ability to breathe and there is currently no cure.
Amy spoke openly about her diagnosis on Loose Women at the time, and said she could only have two or three years to live.
And earlier this year, Katie has admitted just how difficult it is to see her mum struggle as they isolate separately due to lockdown restrictions.
She told new! magazine: "She's struggling. She's slowed down so much with her breathing and it's not nice to see.
"It's really sad, but it's life and we've just got to enjoy what's left. But it's hard at the moment because I can only see her through the window.
"She's currently turning her home into a garden centre.
"Most people bored at home are growing their own vegetables and sorting out their garden."
Katie previously revealed how her mum "would literally die" if she got coronavirus as she battles the terminal lung condition.
Katie has even offered to donate one of her lungs to help prolong her mum's life, however, Amy turned it down as she didn't want to put her daughter at risk.
Amy previously told The Sunday Mirror: “I said no, you’re not going to do that. You’ve got to think if, by any chance, it went wrong, who’s going to look after your kids?
"You’ve got to think about your children, not me, and what’s going to happen to them.
“Of course, I was so touched at her offer. But Kate is my child, not the other way around. I have to protect her. So there will be no lung transplant from Kate. I can’t allow it”.
