Katie first shared a few snaps with her mom from a vacation together, with the couple hugging in front of stunning views of the beach.
She wrote: & # 39; There are no words to express the love my brother, sister @sophie_pricey and I have for our mother. As you know, this is very important to me because my mother has this disease.
& # 39; This week is IPF week. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that scars your lungs and makes your breathing less efficient.
& # 39; Approximately 6,500 people are diagnosed with IPF each year. The @britishlungfoundation seeks your support to fund important research and provide hope for the future to people with IPF. You can find the link in my latest post. & # 39;

Last month Katie called her mother "my rock" after a series of devastating events including the death of her puppy Rolo and a broken leg in a freak accident while on vacation in Turkey.
Amy helped Katie maintain a positive attitude after being unable to walk for up to two years after jumping off a wall.
A source told The Sun: “Katie's mom has been amazing since the accident – a total superstar.
“Not only did Amy support her with many of the jobs she had to do at home, but she was also an emotional rock. She insisted to Katie that this was just a slip up and she would get over it.
"It helped keep Katie in a really positive outlook during what was obviously a very, very difficult time for her and gave her a massive boost."
What is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis?
- Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition in which scar tissue builds up in the lungs
- It can cause shortness of breath and possible respiratory failure and has been called the "silent killer".
- The early symptoms of the disease are often overlooked or mistaken for a cold or flu
- IPF currently has no cure
A spokesperson for Katie told MailOnline: "Katie's family, friends and supporters keep Katie focused and in good spirits – her own funny sense of humor definitely keeps her spirits up."
Katie also shared a beautiful photo of her mother on Instagram and wrote, “How beautiful my mother looks here in a photo taken today!
"Love my mother so much, she is my real total skirt!"
When Amy was first diagnosed, doctors gave her a life expectancy of three to five years.
“I couldn't handle it, and if you have & # 39; Terminal & # 39; hear, do you think she's not long gone, ”Katie told Loose Women last year.
Amy spoke in the same interview about how IPF, a rare disease that causes progressive and irreversible scars on the lungs, has progressed: “I'm not bad.
"I took tests with the transplant team this week, they kept an eye on me, my pulmonary function tests went down a bit, but that's what I have to expect as it is a progressive disease.
“But they all do the tests on the other organs in your body to prepare you if they think you need a transplant – I'm not yet (on the transplant list) – and they look at everything there is to be done Sure you can handle it – your heart, your liver and your kidneys and all that – and they're still 100 percent fine.
"So at the moment they go:" You are too healthy, go and enjoy yourself. And come back in six months. & # 39; & # 39;
