CFO Skin cancer Foundation of South Africa

Wilna is a Registered Nurse and worked as maternity Midwife for many years, before joining CANSA. Wilna has lived in Modimolle for 45 years, and has been a widow for the past 5 years.

She is intensely interested and involved in the field of Dermatology, and is currently the only sister in Limpopo Province who specializes in skin screenings with the FotoFinder Dermascope.

Wilna is closely involved in Triomf Clinic, Pretoria, being the referring sister of Limpopo Province. She refers many patients to Triomf Clinic on a daily basis, especially for Gynaecology, Dermatology and Surgery.

Most of these patients need treatment for Cancer. She serves as dr Marc Roscher’s assistant whenever he is the visiting Dermatologist at Triomf Clinic. This way she gains a lot of knowledge and experience which helps her in her capacity as a sister when doing screenings with the FotoFinder in small towns. She is able to share her wide knowledge of information on Skin Cancer with patients.

In 2017 she was appointed as treasurer, handling payments and finances of the Skin Cancer Foundation. She has (and always had) passion for her career in the medical field, and completes each and every task with utmost care, love and sensitivity, and always to the very best of her ability
