FOR PHILLIP "PIXS"
Artist in Critical
Phillip "Pixs" Merchant,
a member of the D.A.P.P. Band and the former bassist for Midnite
remains in critical condition at an STX hospital after being shot several
times outside of a concert that took place at the Frontline Nightclub in St.
Croix on January 9, 2009. Phil and his bredren Shiloh
were outside of the venue when shots were fired from an AK-47 being wheeled
about by an unknown gunman.
Pixs was rushed to the hospital,
and the bullets were removed, but he sustained substantial internal damage
to his spleen, liver, pancreas and small intestine. Several days
later, fluids and mucous began to build up in Phil's lungs, which had
also been punctured. Lung surgery was initially prescribed, but was
postponed after his symptoms improved slightly.
Phil remains in critical condition
in the hospital's Intensive Care Unit. Phil did not have any
sort of health insurance, so any contributions that can be made through his
PayPal account will go a long way towards shifting the energy on a
financial level.... Please keep Phil in your thoughts and send your
contributions to email@example.com.
