Patient Education Print Materials

People with cancer and their caregivers need information to make informed decisions about their treatment and care. The American Cancer Society offers patient education flyers, brochures, and booklets on a variety of topics and you can order as many copies as you need.

The print materials currently available are shown below. Each item's last revised date is included so you can check to see if you have the most recent version available. We recommend ordering the most recent version of any item.

How to order patient materials: 

  • If ordering 5 copies or fewer of a specific item, please call 800-227-2345 to place your order. When calling, please have the item title and type available, as well as the shipping address so the call center staff can assist you as efficiently as possible.
  • If ordering more than 5 copies of a specific item, please use the Self-Service Portal for Cancer Education Materials (www.cancer.org/materials). This portal is intended for our partners, constituents, health care providers and health systems to bulk order specific cancer patient education materials and have them shipped to a specific address.
