Katie Price’s terminally ill mum is ‘struggling’ and her breathing has slowed as they enjoy ‘what time she’s got left’ – The Sun
KATIE Price has revealed her terminally ill mum is "struggling" as they enjoy "what time she's got left."
The 42-year-old opened up on her fears for mum Amy, who was diagnosed with idopathic 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 now, 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."
Last month, Katie revealed how her mum "would literally die" if she got coronavirus as she battles the terminal lung condition.
The mother-of-five has previously spoken of her heartache over her mum's condition, with her short-lived rehab stint last year one of her mum's "dying wishes."
An insider told us at the time: “Amy and Katie are very close and Katie’s always asking her if there’s something she wants to do before she gets too unwell.
“Amy basically said it was her dying wish for Katie to sort her life out and get help.
“There’s no way she could refuse. The decision was made between Katie, her management and her family that she would go to The Priory.”
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”.
