If any events are to be held in Rome's name, the family would appreciate if the organizing individuals would clear the nature and structure of the event with Rome's brother, Fahmy. His email address is email@example.com.
While climbing in Chattanooga, Rome fell a little over 50 ft, suffering severe injury to his head and brain. He was airlifted to the nearest hospital, Erlanger, in Chattanooga. Rome has since had several surgeries to relieve the pressure on his brain. He is currently on a very long road to recovery. Because he will have minimal insurance coverage once he is awake and is transferred to rehabilitation, any support from his family, friends and fellow climbers to aid with his rehabilitative care costs would be much appreciated.
