ITUS to Ring June 3, 2016 Nasdaq Closing Bell and Launch New Cancer Social Media Campaign

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - ITUS Corporation (NASDAQ: ITUS) today announced that to commemorate National Cancer Survivor's Day on June 5, company representatives will ring the June 3, 2016 closing bell of The Nasdaq Stock Market. The occasion will also mark the official launch of a new cancer social media campaign entitled "Let's Get Crack'n Against Cancer."

To honor people affected by cancer, and bring additional focus and a renewed sense of urgency to the ongoing cancer healthcare crisis, the "Let's Get Crack'n Against Cancer" campaign will ask the public to post videos to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, indicating why Cancer Counts™ to them, and cracking eggs marked with the word "cancer."

Robert Berman, the president and CEO of ITUS and co-founder of Cancer Counts™ stated, "Cancer has devastated us for so long that it is most often associated with feelings of fear, trepidation, and apathy. However, changes in how we approach cancer are on the way that have the potential to significantly improve patient outcomes and that will finally give us the upper hand. We need to begin to change the perceptions about cancer and engage in a national cancer dialogue so that innovations happen faster, and people are prepared to embrace these changes."

The company's first Cancer Counts™ effort, called Cancer4Pres.org, launched three months ago with the purpose of making cancer a priority for our next president. With over 10,000 Cancer Counts "votes" registered on the C4P website, and thousands of emails sent to the presidential campaigns, C4P has been successful in getting one of presumptive party nominees to agree to formulate and present a policy for addressing the ongoing national cancer epidemic. The "Let's Get Crack'n" campaign will continue the effort to make cancer a part of the political agenda in the general election. Additional information about "Get Crack'n" is available at CancerCountsToMe.org and on social media at #CancerCounts.
