Help give hope a home in Dallas. Hope Lodge offers cancer patients and their caregivers a free place to stay when their best hope for effective treatment is in another city. It provides a home-like environment where guests can retreat to private rooms or connect with others. Hope Lodge Dallas will be on the Baylor University Medical Center campus and will include 50 guest suites, communal kitchen and living area and 24-hour staffing and onsite parking.
The American Cancer Society Patient Navigatior Program offers personalized support to help cancer patients and their caregivers stay on track with treatment and car. A navigator is a specially trained staff person who works with the patient one-on-one and helps guide him or her through their cancer treatment process. More than 2,150 area patients were served in 2015. The program proves site-based navigators at four North Texas hospitals, support and guidance to patients and their caregivers and support in person or over the phone.
Cancer patients often miss or forgo potentially life-saving treatment because they cannot afford transportation, are too ill to drive themselves and many lack family and friends to drive them. In 2015, 11,424 rides were provided free of charge to area cancer patients, to and from cancer-related appointments. ACS meets the needs of area patients with: daily rides through trained volunteers, bus and paratransit passes, taxi vouchers and referrals to other community programs. In 2017 funding needs in North Texas for this program exceeds $170,000.
Cattle Baron's Ball funds vital and cutting-edge research. Each year we offer supporters the oppurtunity to learn more about the work happening in Dallas through an annual "Progess in Cancer Research" Research Symposium. We also offer one-on-one interaction with researchers at on-site lab tours and presentations. Our 2016 Research Symposium presenters were:
Amanda Jones, PhD, is researching about p53 effectors and how they supress tumor formation by constraining transposon activity
Kenneth Portier, PhD, is vice president of the Statistics and Evaluation Center in the Intramural Research department at the American Cancer Society global headquaters. He spoke on cancer research and environmental causes.
Our funding needs for cancer research in 2017 will exceed $4 million in North Texas.
IN HONOR & IN MEMORY
Let your loved ones know you support their cancer journey by donating In Honor or In Memory of them. We will recognize your gift in their honor or memory at the Ball, in the auction book and/or online.
