Sending our very best wishes to Katie, Amy and family

It’s fair to say that the past few weeks have been incredibly tumultuous for Katie Price and her brood-of-five.

Following her explosive split from husband Kieran Hayler, with the ins-and-outs of their relationship breakdown being played out within the press, the 39-year-old has now revealed another incredibly upsetting blow.

Katie has taken to social media to reveal another family battle, sharing that her mother Amy has been diagnosed with terminal illness Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis – a condition in which the lungs become scarred, eventually leading to increasing respiratory problems.

Sharing the harrowing news with her two million Twitter followers, Katie has posted a lengthy statement explaining her mother’s current health status.

In response to the news, the mother-of-five has urged fans to begin supporting the British Lung Foundation. Katie writes, ‘As a shock to us all, me and my family are proud to be supporting the British lung foundation to help support awareness and raising funds for research of IPF’.

Katie continues, ‘My mum is a fighter. She is working out every day, going to work and living life to the full. Please help us in supporting the British lung foundation so we can make a difference’.

Katie has captioned the very moving post ‘Thanks for everyone’s supportive messages’.

Many fans have been quick to comment messages of support for Katie and her family during this undoubtedly very difficult time, with replies reading messages such as: ‘All my love to you, Amy and family.. bless you for bringing awareness to the condition for your mum and many others’ and ‘So very sorry to hear your Mom is unwell thoughts and prayers with you and your family’.

Sending our very best wishes to Katie, Amy and family during this very difficult time.
