In the latest Katie Price news, the star shared her joy after it was revealed that a review could mean her terminally ill mother will have access to essential treatments.
The former glamor model’s mother, Amy, 64, has idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a disease that causes scarring on the lungs and makes it difficult to breathe.
Katie, 42, shared her happiness after the National Institute for Excellence in Health and Care (NICE) agreed to re-examine current treatment restrictions.
She wrote on Instagram: “I am delighted to hear that through the @actionpulmonaryfibrosis campaign, NICE has agreed to review restrictions on antifibrotic treatments for IPF patients like my mother.
What is the latest news from Katie Price?
“It is inhuman that these restrictions exist.
“My mom is at a critical juncture and the drug can be rejected if she reaches the threshold where the restrictions take effect.

“That would be devastating for you and us.”
“NICE has to act quickly,” added the mother of five.
What did Katie say about her mother’s illness?
In February Katie said her mother was “not long gone”.
Speaking to Nolan Live on BBC One, she said, “Now she has oxygen, it’s back home. She only has 32 percent of her lung capacity. So if you imagine being so out of breath now, it must be terrible, and it is a terrible road.
“It’s horrible to see my mother going through it because she’s so active, it’s cruel.”
