Stretch the Ride is the proud culmination of a vision that was sparked into action by a very special patient known and loved as “Stretch”.
“Stretch”, along with the physicians and staff of the radiation oncology department of Pottstown Memorial Regional Cancer Center shared the common belief:
“Together, we can do more for our local cancer patients and their families in their greatest time of need.”
“Stretch” was passionate about developing this foundation to support the basic needs of local cancer patients and their family members; and to relieve the financially devastating impact cancer can have on the stability of every day life.
“Stretch the Ride Foundation” was founded by Michael Lambo, MD, Sam Nalbone, and Sherri Wunderlich, RN in loving memory of William Smaltz and would not be possible without the support of Stretch’s wife, Karen Smaltz, and his daughter Kelly Smaltz.
