Katie Price’s ill mum shares she will die unless she gets a transplant

Katie Price 's mum says she's 'in the last couple of years now' as she could die unless she gets a lung transplant.

Amy has a terminal lung condition called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, and has said her only option now is to get a lung transplant.

Speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid alongside her daughter Katie, Amy spoke about how she was doing.

She explained: "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."

Amy continued: "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."

Amy told Piers and Susanna that there are risks that come with getting a lung transplant.

She said: "With the transplant my age is against me, because the results are not that good as you get older."

Amy added that "you could die in the operating theatre", or "you could have rejection".

She continued: "If you can go through all of that you would have a better quality of life and maybe another two or three years."
