Dick Dodd, drummer, first as a Mouseketeer "Dickie," later, in the Surf Band Eddie and the Showmen, famous for the hit Mr. Moto, later still, in the band The Standells. Dick was the lead singer on the hit song Dirty Water...still played at the end of every home game win at Fenway Park. Unfortunately, Dick has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
Dick will be incurring tremendous expenses, well into six figures as a result of his treatment. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have just been told, by a very reliable source, that Larry Tamblyn of the Standells has stated that Dick had a substance abuse problem. He did NOT. If you have any questions about Dick's untimely death, please contact me. Peggi Collins

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that Dickie lost his battle last night. He had contracted pneumonia and just wasn't strong enough to fight it. Please remember him in your prayers and consider adding to this fund which his family desperately needs to offset the great expense of his illness.

Unfortunately, Dick's condition is so serious that his doctors have postponed chemo treatment until he gets some strength back.

My best wishes go to my brother-in-law Dick. Take one day at a time and keep on going. Someone please keep me updated, and give much needed support to Jane. I will make a donation.

Oops. Apparently they did not start chemo yesterday. Still evaluating treatment options.

Update. A chemo port has been placed directly into Dick's esophagus and he had his first treatment, yesterday. He is also continuing to get radiation therapy. He is unable to eat, so a feeding tube has been placed in to his stomach. Dick's spirits continue to be high but he is extremely tired. For that reason, and because his immunity is compromised, visits are limited to family.

Dick~ I met you through Jake and made your wedding cake for you & Jane. Although we haven't seen each other in years, you have been on my mind lately. Now I know why. Wish I could put a couple more zeros towards helping you. Attitude is everything. Be positive, and know that you are loved and remembered by many.
