Lung Cancer Educational Materials


Each year, we send hundreds of kits to hospitals and cancer centers for use during Lung Cancer Awareness Month in November. If your treatment facility would like to order a kit, including a poster, LCA information and give-away items, please email us at  

For all requests received after September 30, we will do our best to deliver your kit prior to November 1. 

We regret that at this time, we are only able to send kits within the United States.

We are dedicated to providing those facing lung cancer with the most up-to-day and reader-friendly information.

For people with lung cancer and their loved ones:

We can send you information on lung cancer in the mail. Our lung cancer packet includes Frankly Speaking about Lung Cancer as well as information on the Phone Buddy Program and our other services. If you know the type of lung cancer you have, we'll include either a non-small cell or small cell booklet. Check out our other brochures below and if you'd like us to include any of them, just let us know.

Call our toll-free HelpLine at 1-800-298-2436 or email with your mailing address and we'll send that information out right away.
