Howard Stern may be a witty judge on America’s Got Talent, but the shock jock also has a successful – yet controversial – radio show on SiriusXM radio. If you happen to be a fan of Stern’s show, then you likely love Stern’s sidekick, Robin Quivers. While the pair usually have fans laughing, yesterday was a shocking day for listeners, as Robin revealed her struggle with cancer! Details inside.
Robin Quivers may be Howard Stern’s sidekick, but yesterday, Quivers stole the show when she revealed on air that she has been battling cancer for some time now. 61-year-old Quivers, who had been absent from the studio for the last year, informed listeners that her doctor discovered cancer in the endometrial tissue in her uterus in 2012. Since the discovery, Quivers has undergone surgery to remove a grapefruit sized tumor last year, as well as radiation and chemotherapy. “It was so huge that it was lying on all the organs in my pelvis, and they literally had to scrape it off when they got to it. They couldn’t even figure out how to operate at one point because it was so massive,” Robin told fans of the tumor.
Now, Quivers says that doctors believe she is in remission, but at one point even Howard Stern though her prognosis was grim. “I’ve got to be honest, I thought she was a goner. I’ll tell you how serious this was…I was already making funeral arrangements. Not to make light of this situation – I didn’t know what was going on. I was freaking out,” Stern told listeners on Monday. Stern also admitted that had anything happened to Quivers, he would cancel his radio show because, well, she is the backbone of the show.
We certainly hope that Robin Quivers makes a quick recovery!
