dude (from Xray Eyeballs) in a Jonathan Toubin t-shirt (by carlyrab)

The following message was posted to the IheartJT Facebook page yesterday:

IHeartJT Update from Jonathan's family: The Toubin family is so grateful for the love and support of everyone at this emotional time. Jonathan is still in critical condition and needs your positive thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery. Please keep your love and energy flowing.

That unfortunately conflicts with rumors that his condition had improved to "stable" or "serious." In fact, Howie Pyro wrote in a comment on the same page (but in an earlier post):

I hear that Jonathan will NOT be paralized, he has been updated from critical to serious condition (good thing!), he's having some issues with punctured lungs & other stuff, but he is waaay better than expected and things are looking up!!! please donate to his paypal fund at ihearttoubin@gmail.com and keep praying! It seems to be working...

Benefits continue to happen around the country. Turbo Fruits headlined one in Nashville on Saturday. There were at least three in NYC over the weekend and one in Austin, and more are being planned, including at least one in Chicago.

T-shirts, like the one you saw above, were made and worn by friends and fans at the benefits. Photos are currently being collected for the Facebook page.

Info on how you can help is HERE.
