Werner Muehlemann – Survivor and Advocate for Change!

Werner Muehlemann

“At 28 years-old, I went to see my doctor about a problem I was having. He told me that I had nothing to worry about because I was young and in good shape. Following a few tests, I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. In that moment, I saw my life flash before my eyes – my career and dreams of getting married and starting a family vanishing.

The CCAC helped me acquire all the information that I needed to understand my treatments to follow in the months ahead and ultimately beat colorectal cancer. The CCAC also helped my family get the information they needed to support me in my long journey. Today, nine years later, I have three children with the same woman and I survived this cancer. And for the first a few years ago, I was able to complete my marathon.

Werner now serves on the Board of Directors at the CCAC and advocates on behalf of   all the work that we do in order to beat this terrible disease.

My dream for the future is that colorectal cancer screening becomes as routine as going to the dentist.”

In the spirit of Young Survivors Week, the CCAC has compiled a series of survivor stories to offer hope, instill courage and inspire change. We continue to share new stories every day. If you would like to share yours, please send it to isabellan@colorectal-cancer.ca.
