Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas
We are proud to celebrate our 29th year of fighting cancer in our community by raising money for treatment and awareness of the disease among local citizens. Since 1992, Cool October has contributed more than $2.4 million to the Irving Healthcare Foundation in support of cancer services at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Irving, the city’s only not-for-profit hospital. Every advancement in treatment at the cancer center has been funded in part by these proceeds.

Four Seasons Resort and Club is committed to raising $120,000 in 2013 for the Irving Healthcare Foundation to support the following equipment at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Irving:
Biovision Surgical Specimen Radiography System
This $100,000 device provides real-time, operating tableside analysis of surgical specimens to ensure that all cancerous tissue has been removed. Used primarily on breast cancer patients having lumpectomies, it will help the Cancer Center better serve more than 150 patients a year. Currently, the entire surgical team waits for up to 20 minutes for tissue to be analyzed in a lab outside the operating room while the patient waits sleeping under anesthesia. When the Cancer Center acquires this piece of equipment, it will be the first in use in the state of Texas. Click here to learn more about this equipment.
MultiCare Maximum Comfort (Tabletop) Package
This $20,000 device provides, as promised by the name, maximum comfort for patients having a stereotactic breast procedure. These procedures are done using the needle-biopsy machine that Four Seasons generously funded in 1998 (and has helped better diagnose thousands of people!) The device provides greater comfort and faster procedures through more exact positioning.
