Dr Andrew Katelaris and Aunty Mimmie

Elizabeth Humble (Aunty Mimmie) is a Gomeroi/Kamilaroi Elder from The Pilliga. We became friends whilst fighting to save their sacred lands from Whitehaven Coal in The Leard Forest.

When Aunty came to The Ubuntu Wellness Clinic she was on several medications, Lyrica for depression and Warfarin for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). I showed her medical records to Dr Andrew whom said, she doesn’t need Warfarin as she only has Shallow Vein Thrombosis (SVT) so there is no risk of blood clots. So Aunty stopped taking the Warfarin. Then after getting to know Aunty I concluded, the reason for her depression, was having her two grandchildren ripped from her and her son Sam, so Aunty stopped taking the Lyrica. We are still fighting to get access to the children but Aunty is rocking it !!! even threw away her walking stick last week, she’s a legend and we all love her spirit and determination. xxx PRB
