What illness does Amy have?
Amy was diagnosed with idopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2017.
Sadly her illness is terminal and there is no cure.
As of 2023, Amy continues her ongoing health battle.
What is Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis?
According to the NHS, Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition in which the lungs become scarred and breathing becomes increasingly difficult.
It's not clear what causes it, but it usually affects people who are around 70 to 75 years old, and is rare in people under 50.
Several treatments can help reduce the rate at which IPF gets worse, but there's currently no treatment that can stop or reverse the scarring of the lungs.
What has Katie Price said about her mum's illness?
Back in 2017 Amy bravely opened up about her diagnosis on Loose Women.
On hearing the sad news Katie took to Twitter to pledge her support for the British Lung foundation – and ran the London Marathon in 2018 in aid of the charity.
