Katie Price shares some good news amid mum’s terminal illness

Katie's mum suffers from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

In the latest Katie Price news, the star has shared her delight after it emerged a review could mean her terminally ill mum gets access to important treatments.

The former glamour model’s mother Amy, 64, suffers from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a condition where the lungs become scarred and breathing gets harder.

Katie, 42, told of her happiness after the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) agreed to have another look at current restrictions on treatment.

She wrote on Instagram: “I’m so delighted to hear that through @actionpulmonaryfibrosis campaign, NICE has agreed to review the restrictions on anti-fibrotic treatments for IPF patients like my mum.

What has Katie said about her mum’s illness?

In February, Katie said her mum “hasn’t long left”.

Speaking to Nolan Live on BBC One, she said: “Now she’s on oxygen, it’s hit home again. She’s only got like 32 per cent left of her lung capacity. So if you imagine now being that out of breath, it must be awful, and it’s an awful way to go.
