CancerOption.com Initiates Interactive Community with the Rollout of the 
Company's Chat Rooms and Message Boards

  
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 22, 1999-- 

President and CEO, Arnold Takemoto, to Host First Online Forum 

CancerOption.com Inc. (Symbol: CAOP) Friday announced the rollout of the 
company's interactive community with chat rooms and message boards for its 
visitors to discuss and share their experiences in an open forum. 

The company understands the importance of establishing an arena where 
individuals can communicate with others in the privacy and comfort of their 
own home or office about the delicate nature of cancer. Furthermore, 
CancerOption.com recognizes the need and demand of providing an open 
discussion with physicians and experts in the health care field. 

Statistics show an increasing number of Americans are using the Internet to 
help satisfy health concerns: 24.8 million adults in 1999, a 45% jump over 
last year, according to Cyber Dialogue. However, Cyber Dialogue's recently 
released Cybercitizen Health research points out, there has not been a 
corresponding development of web sites by physicians.  

CancerOption.com's community will offer physicians a forum to communicate not 
only with their patients but other individuals who seek the advice of a 
medical professional. 

CancerOption.com President and Chief Executive Officer, Arnold Takemoto, will 
be hosting the first online event, Wednesday, Oct. 27, 1999, at 3 p.m. EST, 
and stated, "The chat rooms and message boards, as well as the availability 
to chat with health care practitioners online is extremely valuable for 
people stricken with cancer or other health ailments.  

"Family members will also benefit from this interactive community by being 
able to receive advice and support from others within this open summit." 

Individuals coping with cancer, along with cancer survivors, family members 
and visitors will have the opportunity to chat live online with Takemoto and 
ask questions about their unique situations.
