Katie’s son Harvey has been rushed to hospital by ambulance after feeling unwell at his sister Princess’s 13th birthday party.
THE 18-year-old, who suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, needed ‘urgent medical attention’ as he enjoyed the family party and an ambulance was called to take him straight to hospital. Katie recognised the signs and knew when to call an ambulance, he is expected to be released later today.
Price, a regular visitor to the Costa del Sol, was unavailable for comment today as she waited anxiously at the hospital for news on her son.
In 2017, Katie revealed that her mum had been diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which causes progressive and irreversible scarring of the lungs, currently, there is no cure, but the warm climate in Spain has helped her cope better with the disease.
Prader-Willi syndrome is a complex genetic condition that affects many parts of the body. In infancy, this condition is characterised by weak muscle tone (hypotonia), feeding difficulties, poor growth, and delayed development.
