Young Philz doing well, assistance still needed

Philz after surgery in France

Five-year-old Philz Viville of the Kalinago Territory is said to be recovering in a hospital in France following a successful surgery to remove a life-threatening brain tumor.

Tests from preliminary surgery in January, done in Martinique, confirmed that the tumor was cancerous and further surgery was critical, this time in France.

“We are delighted to say that the second surgery was successful,” Philz’s mother, Maureen Viville, said via social media. “We wait and be of good courage and God will continue to take things in his hands. Keep praying for Philz full recovery. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who has kept him and his family in their prayers and thoughts. God bless you all.”

Fund raising coordinator for Philz and family relative, Pastor Henderson Bully, told DNO that the mother and child are still in need of financial assistance.

“Right now they are in France and he had the surgery and he is recovering now from the surgery,” he said. “The surgery was covered but in terms of living costs and expenses for the mother and him, we are still collecting contributions.”

Bully revealed that the mother is presently being housed at the Hospital but she must move out as Philz gets better.

He also said the young child has to receive chemotherapy but remains optimistic.

“I am very optimistic that he will survive,” Bully said.

Those who are interested in contributing to Philz’s medical treatment can do so at the Royal Bank of Canada, account number 7103369 and account name Pastor Henderson Bully, or at GoFundMe, account “Hope for Phil” by Gillen Williams, or contact the Salybia Primary School at: 266-4259.

    Happy to hear that he is doing well. God is good!
    He is a strong little boy who is full of hope. Remember he consoled his mother and said he will be alright?
    God bless and help him with continued health progress.
    God bless his mother.

    DNO thank to you for telling us> I am glad to know that Thilz is coming on. As Reverend Hill has said: Prayer in the name of Jesus Christ is very powerful–that is my contribution; on Thilz behalf. And so, may God’s Will be done for the health and Life of little Philz, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

    Thank you DNO for giving us an update on the case of young Philz.

    Many people prayed and are still praying for this precious little boy.

    I would like encourage DNO readers everywhere to continue praying for this child.

    Did you know that there are medical schools attached to great universities that have actually done scientific studies on the effect of prayer on healing? Study after study has shown that patients who have been made the subjects of prayer have been shown to (a) recover more quickly, (b) require less medication, and (c) have less relapses? There is more work to be done.

    I invite you to visit my website

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill, D.D. International Evangelist.

    I am so heartened by this. First to admit that this is far more important than scoring political points. Lets’ help whichever way we can.
