Dearest friends, fans, FAMILY!
Please reblog, share, tweet, FB, you name it!

Over the years it has been my freehand spray paint artwork that many of you are accustomed to seeing.  There will be more but for now, there is this.  My wife and I are working hard on keeping you up to date.  We are blown away by the more than 60K followers who show there support to us daily on the blog and other social media platforms!

So, here is a scan of my brain and the Tumor is circled. Its bigger than first thought.  On the 9th I have one more MRI w/ spectroscopy to determine the rate of growth and cell types.  Then it gets really hairy.

Ray Brain

I am doing the best I can to be in good spirits and will continue to strive! It really helps knowing I have touched so many people with my artwork and commitment to all of you as friends and fans, now FAMILY!  As always, my wife and I will keep you updated on things as they move forward…. because they will move forward!


A huge assortment of my art prints and original artwork will be 50% off in my Etsy store throughout this to assist us with raising the necessary funds to overcome any obstacle while I am undergoing treatment, surgeries, chemo and radiation.

Use coupon code ART50 at checkout and get 50% off of ANYTHING. Now is a good chance to get the print or the old original you had your eye on.  Here is the link.

Please also go to and share or contribute if at all possible.  Anything counts and there are some great rewards.

Love, Ray and Rhian

  3. […] at present, he has been diagnosed with a brain tumour and is undergoing treatment, read his story here. As a result all the profits from the sale of his works will fund this. Find a fabulous selection […]

  4. […] A few short weeks ago, Ray received some very unsettling news. He was diagnosed with having a brain tumor. With the love and support of his family, his friends and his fans, Ray is in a positive frame of mind. Ray continues to create more beautiful pieces of art. He is not letting this setback debilitate him in any way. Ray’s indomitable will to beat this is nothing short of inspiring. You can read more about Ray’s story here. […]

    Thank you for following me on Twitter. I pray that you keep positive. When my daughter was five years old she was diagnosed with a malignant tumor, an Astrocytoma of the Cerebellum. Like you and your wife, we were devastated. I decided that I would look only at the positive results of those healed of this tumor, and not see my daughter as a negative statistic. She had three separate operations over several years, and lots of scans. But she also had thousands of prayers, as you have. The wonderful news is that she was cured! She’s now the mother of three little boys. I will be praying for you daily, and checking your updates.

    ‘Fraid brain tumours are always a little hairy. No wonder you presented seizures though! Finger crossed! I hope the white fuzziness is swelling, and the tumour is only wide and not deep!

  47. REDdog says:

    Maaate, you should totally stencil that brain scan onto a T-shirt with some kind of pithy remark, like Homer Simpson talking to his brain “Come on brain, work with me here.” or something. Hang in there, mate, you Rhiann. Respect REDdog

    hope you’ll consider a custom piece for yourself called “my tumour” and paint it from a stencil of the medical images…i would, if i were clever

    Recently I started following an artist in California – I was/ hoping that one day I can commission a family portrait from him. He does great spray paint artwork – something a bit different and that I always enjoy.

    The artist, Ray has been diagnosed with a large brain tumor. So to raise money for his care, he has asked us followers to share his art sale. I know there aren’t many of you following me but I am hoping some of his art will catch your fancy and you can have the opportunity to get something unique for your home.

    I will still continue to follow this blog and in a year or so can afford to commission something fantastic from him.

    Best wishes to you Ray, it’s a tough road; but you are surrounded by love.

    Dear community of bloggers,

    In recent times many of us got together to support some bloggers, who had their blog accounts discontinued.

    Our community of bloggers showed that it can stand up for each other when is needed.

    This is the time to help Ray Ferrer, who needs our help to raise enough funds to support his brain cancer treatment.

    Let’s do it!

    Thank you.
