In an emotional episode of Howard Stern's radio show...
TMZ reports that during an episode of Howard Stern's Sirius XM show, Robin Quivers revealed she has been fighting cancer for the past year but is now cancer free.
She said her cancer developed from endometrial tissue in the uterus. She had treatment, including chemotherapy, and the treatment worked because doctors said she is cancer free.
Stern said that he got chills when listening to her story and said: "I gotta be honest, I thought she was a goner."
She hasn't appeared in the studio for the past year and has been doing the show from home during her treatment. She said doctors found a "mass" in her pelvis last year and performed surgery to find out what it was.
Quivers told Stern before the operation that doctors found out she had a cancerous tumor. He said he was "freaking out" when she had surgery. He added: "It was just a f**king crazy thing that came out of left field."
She said her tumor was the size of a grapefruit and it took doctors eight hours to remove the tumor due to the size.
Stern said: "Robin means more to me than anything. Seeing her go through this just f**king tore me up."
She added that she didn't feel alone because Stern was there for her the entire time.
