Family & Friends of Richard "Dickie" Smith unite to raise money to help with his battle against Pancreatic Cancer.

Richard "Dickie" Smith, Clanton native, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in July of 2012. Originally given 6 months to live, he unfortunately lost his battle on November 8th 2012. When he was diagnosed, a true Angel on Earth began giving him 24/7 care. Barbara has given every waking moment of her life to care for him and due to that, she has been unable to work. There is no cure for Pancreatic Cancer and we sadly watched Dickie struggle to fight this disease. Even when in extreme pain, he would strongly look up and say "I am not in pain!" but we could see it on his face. He put up a major fight against this vicious disease but sadly, it came to an end. He worried there would be a financial burden left after he left this world. When faced with life altering illnesses, we are often faced with many financial burdens aside from medical expenses. His family and friends humbly ask for support with funeral costs and to help rebuild the life of his caregiver. She so beautifully put her life on hold to give him complete care.  Please help us support the memory of our  father, our grandfather, our brother and our friend. Thank you for your help, your prayers and your positive energy.
