Why We Started This Website

This website was started to spread awareness of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) and showcase Rey Umali’s paintings. This website is managed by Rey’s family, who continues to support and encourage his love of art.

Painting has become a form of therapy for Rey after his diagnosis. Rey spends his days painting in his studio, playing cards with friends and listening to music. As his speech abilities decreases, he uses the paint brush to communicate.

We understand that living with MSA is not easy. We have experienced the extreme heartbreak that comes with this diagnosis. However, we try to stay positive throughout this time. We have many things to be thankful for, including a loving family and friends.

We thank you for checking out our site! If you are living with MSA, we are here for you.

We will continue to update the website with Rey’s newest paintings. You can also check us out on Instagram to see more recent updates!

  1. I too was diagnosed with MSA in 2016. I was a personal trainer, and artist. I had a small studio that burned in November 2016 in upstate New York. With encouragement of a friend and fellow artist I will be returning to my painting. The style will be quite different than before but I believe will still capture my thoughts and feelings
