Robin Quivers of Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show has revealed that she’s been undergoing cancer treatments for the past year. According to TMZ, Quivers’ choice to take time off from the show during this past year was a direct result of her cancer battle.
Check out the video below of Stern’s first show without Robin. It’s very touching the way he speaks about how amazing he thinks she is and how much she means to him as he acknowledges her absence due to a “procedure.”
When Stern was asked his thoughts on the whole ordeal, he actually reveals he thought Quivers was “a goner.” We’re very glad to hear it’s not the case as Quivers is said to be cancer free after undergoing chemotherapy. Apparently, while Quivers was recovering, she actually was co-hosting her radio show with Stern from her home. What a trooper!
TMZ reports that:
Robin said doctors initially discovered a “mass” in her pelvis last year and decided to perform surgery to investigate the situation … Howard said he was “freaking out” when Robin went under the knife … saying, “It was just a f**king crazy thing that came out of left field.” Robin says her tumor was about the size of a grapefruit. She said it took doctors 8 hours to remove the tumor because it was so big. “Robin means more to me than anything,” Howard said … adding, “Seeing her go through this just f**king tore me up.” Robin said she didn’t feel alone at any part of her treatment … because Howard was there for her the whole time.
