Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 4, 2009 -- MedicinePhone announced today the availability of TouchOut Cancer on the Apple App Store. TouchOut Cancer is an application for iPhone and iPod touch dedicated to daily cancer news, prevention information and updates.

TouchOut Cancer co-founder and cancer survivor Katie Meacham said, "As a survivor I am very excited about the TouchOut Cancer app for the iPhone and iPod touch as a way to stay in touch with the latest cancer updates. As a patient it is critical that you are as informed as possible on what is going on in the cancer arena because you may just stumble upon something that will help you."

Cancer survivor, Fran Drescher said, "The Cancer Schmancer Movement is thrilled to participate in TouchOut Cancer, as it is providing an innovative new medium for us to reach out to the "every" woman about how to transform from patients into medical consumers."

One in three women and one in two men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. The purpose of TouchOut Cancer is to raise and maintain disease awareness by providing daily cancer updates. The goal is to stay updated every day using this innovative application. TouchOut Cancer utilizes best in class content from the top cancer and healthcare organizations. Content will include prevention tips, new and updated clinical trials, stories of hope, information about cancer services and celebrity audio and video messages.

The application for the revolutionary iPhone and iPod touch will serve as a platform for the medical community to distribute cancer related information and news. Organizations which will be contributing content include Cancer Schmancer, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the I'm Too Young For This Cancer Foundation with more organization announcements forthcoming.

Celebrities such as Fran Drescher, Matisyahu and Olympic Gold Medalist Bryan Clay provide celebrity updates.

The TouchOut Cancer application for iPhone and iPod touch has the following features:

  • Daily cancer news and updates in audio, video and text formats.
  • When users are viewing a news update they can either TouchOut UP or TouchOut DOWN depending on its relevancy to them.
  • A statistics tracker for users to see how often they "TouchOut". The goal of this feature is for users to keep their score as close to 100% as possible by "TouchingOut" every day.
  • Keep others up to date by automatically emailing TouchOut Up news items to your friends and family.
