Member’s Statement: Josie Minniti

Ms D’AMBROSIO (Mill Park—Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, Minister for Solar Homes) (Wednesday, 25 November 2020 10:13): I rise to congratulate Josie Minniti, who was recently awarded a Westfield Local Heroes award in recognition of her volunteer work over many years. This award is given to individuals and affiliated organisations that have had a positive impact on their community. Josie has had that positive impact in spades for many years. She has been a dedicated and inspiring volunteer for the Northern Health Foundation, so far raising more than $700 000 to support kidney and cancer services. Josie is always there to support patients who are feeling unwell and vulnerable, despite having health challenges of her own and dealing with cancer in her own family. Josie has nominated that the $10 000 prize for the Westfield Local Heroes award be donated to Northern Hospital for the purchase of endobronchial ultrasound machines used to carry out diagnostic examination of thoracic endoscopy using the latest generation video bronchoscope.
