OUR 2014 GOAL
Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas
We are proud to celebrate our 30th 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 $2.5 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 2014 for the Irving Healthcare Foundation to support the following equipment at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Irving:
This high-tech device processes every specimen type processed in a laboratory where cancers are evaluated. It has the ability to process more than three tissues samples at a time, decreasing the wait time and in turn, increasing the patient’s peace of mind by receiving quicker results. The equipment serves all cancer patients, assisting approximately 400 individuals per year.
Imaging QA Phantom Kit
The Imaging QA Phantom Kit digitally targets tumors in the body and delivers precise radiation therapy to the location of the tumor. This saves the surrounding tissue from being radiated, and in turn helps the 300 patients per year that benefit from it to remain as healthy as possible throughout treatment.
DoseLab Pro – QA Equipment
The DoseLab Pro is a piece of radiation equipment that ensures precise dosing for all patients, and improves the quality assurance. It serves approximately 300 radiation therapy patients per year and is fully automatic.
The Midas Stainer is a high-tech “rifle scope” that stains bone marrow in biopsies to increase the diagnosis accuracy in patients with certain types of tumors. This equipment serves approximately 100 patients per year and drastically decreases the result wait time, helping relieve anxiety and allows for peace of mind.
