In 2003, Carlos was diagnosed with Stage II CRC. He underwent major surgery and had a colostomy, followed by a short course of conventional chemotherapy. He recovered very quickly and was able to return straight back to work.
In 2006, along with other CRC patients, Carlos founded Europacolon Spain, an Affiliate of Europacolon, where he has been the Vice President from the start. He participates in conferences and lectures on how patients can improve their quality of life. As an expert in psychology, he explains how they can do this through positivity and hope.
