Christopher Phiouthong, Social Media Director for Trackstarz, was viciously and brutally attacked at his home residence on the night of April 5 according to police reports.

Phiouthong is in critical care at a local Tennessee hospital. The assault involved the use of extremely corrosive acid which resulted in deep burns to over 60% of his body, complete facial disfigurement, and permanent loss of vision in both eyes. He is currently undergoing multiple surgeries and life preserving treatments. His parents are missionaries in Thailand and are in need of financial assistance due to Christopher's lack of medical insurance and the cost of the
extensive care he is receiving. 

The above-referenced details are found on his GoFundMe fundraising support page. The goal has been set at $100,000 with close to $40,000 in donations already received in 24 hours. Trackstarz, the Christian Hip-Hop (CHH) community, and the family of Christopher Phiouthong encourage donations or the sharing of the fundraiser link to enable the goal to be reached as quickly as possible.

Trackstarz posted a tweet reaching out for immediate assistance as seen below:
 

Alright guys, if you have ever supported us or thought about  
supporting us, this is the most important time.  A GoFundMe page has  
been created for our brother @chrispyakakon https://t.co/kfTcN3QCmy https://t.co/VNtGfKRAHQ

"Please pray for Chris and consider helping out. 🙏🏽🙏🏽" 
- Trip Lee

"Chris is a really dope person, breaks my heart that someone would do this to him. This is unimaginably cruel. Please support whether that's by giving or simply remembering him and his family in your prayers. Mourn with those who mourn." 
- Tony Tillman

"All my fans and family please, please pray and rally around this. This is one of our own. God, save our brother. This happened right here in middle Tennessee to a brother I know and love. I'm at a loss for words. Please give. Please pray."
