Data from a national survey of caregivers of cancer survivors were used to estimate the time costs associated with informal caregiving in the 2 years after patient diagnosis with 10 of the most prevalent cancers. Valued at the median wage in 2006, time costs associated with informal caregiving were substantial and ranged from $72,702 (95% confidence interval [95% CI], $56,814-$88,590) for lung cancer patients to $38,334 (95% CI, $31,442-$45,226) for breast cancer patients.
