Brain Tumor Diagnosis….

Posted: January 26, 2015 in Art Work

Hi Friends and Fans of Ray! This is his wife, Rhian Ferrer….
Tuesday morning I found Ray in bed having a seizure (he has never had one before) I brought him to the hospital and he is stable but has a massive baseball sized tumor in/on his brain.  He will be undergoing surgeries, radiation and chemo therapy in the upcoming months.  

I have set up a Go Fund Me page for Ray.

Here is the link.

Please share and be sure to check out the links on the page, including the Etsy link where you can get get great art prints of his that will also help contribute!

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you and our family thanks you. He holds his fans in such high regards and will be updating everyone as things progress.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Praying for him and the family! God bless! ❤

  2. I’m glad that you have such a following: that says a great deal about you. ‘Never had cancer, and I do not know what it is like to walk in your shoes. I always liked that line in Apollo 13, when Ed Harris at Ground Control Houston says “This could be our finest hour.” I hope the best for you, artist-blogger-fighter-good man. T

  3. Thoughts and prayers. I see you’re moving to San Diego–there is excellent health care there. May he have the best!

    Keeping you two in my thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you. Positive vibes coming your way! xoxoM

  23. middleagedyo says:

    Really sad to hear, will pray for swift healing, he’s tough!

  24. Brometheus says:

    Jesus…sorry to hear this. Ray just started following my blog a few days ago. I’ll keep you all in my prayers. I wish him a speedy recovery. Stay strong.

  25. I am so deeply sorry to hear of this. Please send Ray all of our love and best wishes, and that goes out to you and your family too. In times like this, you have to reach deep down, and suck up every ounce of courage that you have. It’s horrific, but trust in life. (NO religion here) for Ray IS life, not living life. How much is the procedure after you’ve paid what your medical aid will pay. i.e. how much are you trying to raise honey?

    Lots of love

    If you can, please help this man and his family. Tumors of any kind lead to expensive treatment and it takes so much support from the loved ones around you.

  52. Many blessings and prayers!

  53. Prayers and healing energy to your husband, courage, hope and strength to your family in this difficult time.

  54. Rhian, I’m so sorry to hear the news of Ray’s tumor. Having suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2011, I know what it is to have to fight for survival. Usually only 30-40% of us make it to the hospital, yet I survived, even after suffering a stroke during brain surgery. Be strong and have faith in God, in Ray’s will, and in the doctors.

    Ray is an extraordinarily talented artist and I’m sure he is one heck of a fighter as well. The journey will not be easy, but it will make you both stronger and more grateful for the little things in life you share. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers; sending you both warm, gentle, healing hugs. God Bless you both and may his recovery be swift. Eva

This is a subject I am unfortunately very well versed on. Take care 🙂
