After first revealing in 2012 that she was suffering from cancer, long-time Howard Stern Show cohort Robin Quivers revealed on the air this morning that she's been declared cancer-free. Quivers has been broadcasting from her home via an ISDN line since she had a large tumor removed from her bladder in May of 2012, after which she underwent extensive radiation therapy, chemotherapy and other operations. However, the listeners knew only that Quivers was working from home, while almost nothing else was shared about her condition.
"Howard was wrecked when this first came out," Stern producer Jon Hein stated on the air today, according to Rolling Stone. "He didn't feel comfortable doing the show without her. It looks like she's cancer-free and will hopefully be back here sometime soon."
After offering her fans no medical updates, Quivers finally broke her silence this morning and shared the full story of her ordeal. She said there were times when doctors thought she might die, but she miraculously rebounded and is now cancer-free. It's unclear when she will return to the studio, but she is scheduled to appear at a New York Barnes and Noble store on October 9 to promote her new book, The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life, according to a Rolling Stone report.
