Lung Cancer Educational Materials


If your healthcare facility would like to host an event this November, Lung Cancer Awareness Month, consider making it Shine a Light on Lung Cancer Event. These events are a great way to showcase your program to your community and an opportunity to support those living with or at risk for lung cancer. For more information visit:

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.
