This is Marjorie Perry from Atlanta Rocks! Indoor Climbing. Rich has been part of the Atlanta climbing community for 22+ years. He has worked for Atlanta Rocks! since 1996. He's also a flight instructor, train enthusiast, and avid skateboarder. He can climb 5.11s in his tennis shoes. :) Rich is part of the climbing community family. He loved his mother more than life itself. The climbing community rallied around him years ago to help buy a cemetery marker for his mother. He chose to use the leftover money to go towards the Wounded Warrior Project and The Rangers Scholarship Fund in honor of our dear climbing buddy Jon Peney who was killed while serving in Afghanistan.
Now Rich needs us again. He has been diagnosed with abdominal cancer (originally thought to be colon cancer). He's been feeling lousy since summer and even had to call in sick (something Rich would NEVER do). He hasn't been able to keep food down. He's consulting the doctor tomorrow (1/11/18) and may be admitted for surgery as early as tomorrow. There are a lot of unknowns at the moment. I will post updates in the journal. Please keep Rich in your prayers.
