The piano tuner soon will undergo cancer treatment

For Jim Sulkowski, the piano tuner, the day has finally arrived after over 13 months from his first surgery in New Orleans.

I’ve been waiting a long time knowing I have tumors on my liver. This new treatment is called Y-90 microspheres or sarasphers where a catheter is connected from the groin to the tumors on the liver.

These radioactive beads attack the cancer directly which has been known to be a successful treatment, however, sometimes it requires more than one.

Debbie and I are excited to have this opportunity because there are only two specialists that do this in the United States that we know of. This is more popular in Germany and other parts of Europe.

We are doing to Denver, about 5 1/2  to 6 hours from here and will spend the week there starting Nov. 12.

 We would appreciate the prayers from those of you that believe in Jesus. If you want to contact me, you can contact me through this paper or write me at:
