Katie Price’s mother Amy admits time is running out for her unless she gets her transplant

February 10, 2021

Katie Price’s mum Amy, has shared a heartbreaking update on her terminal lung condition. 

Amy Price was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) in 2017. This lung condition causes scarring to the lungs and impacts breathing. 

There is no known cure for the disease, leaving a lung transplant as the only option. Without a transplant, Amy has only two to three years to live.

She appeared on Good Morning Britain with her daughter Katie to explain how she was coping with the news. 

Amy told Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: “I’m very up and down really, to be honest with you. Obviously, it’s terminal and I should imagine I’m in the last couple of years now.

“What with Covid and everything, if I catch a cold or Covid there’s just no hope, so that would be the end of it for me.

“But positively, I’m hoping, I’m pushing to see if I can get on the transplant list. Because there is no cure there’s nothing else they can do for me really.”

She went on to explain there are many risks that come with lung transplants.
 
Amy continued, “With the transplant, my age is against me because the results are not that good as you get older.”

“You could die in the operating theatre”, or “you could have rejection”.

“If you can go through all of that you would have a better quality of life and maybe another two or three years.”

Katie has selflessly offered giving one of her own lungs to her mother, but Amy turned it down as she didn’t want to put her daughter at risk.

Amy 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”.

Katie ran a marathon for the British Lung Foundation in 2018 to help raise awareness for IPF.

Amy felt proud of Katie, although she was unable to complete the marathon. She posted on social media, “I just want to say how proud I am of my daughter Katie for doing the marathon.  

“She may not have completed it but she has brought so much awareness it has been worth it for the British Lung Foundation.”
Katie has opened up about struggling with being not able to see her mother due to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

She shared a photo on Instagram of her mum with the caption: “My mum looking so good today she sent me this photo and I have to say she is so beautiful inside and out and I love her so much, time is so precious I hate not being able to see her because of shielding. I love you to the moon and back mum.”
