ROBIN QUIVERS I’VE BEEN FIGHTING CANCER
Robin Quivers — Howard Stern’s right hand woman — just announced she’s been battling cancer for the past year … but says she’s now cancer free.
Quivers says … her cancer developed from endometrial tissue, which is tissue in the uterus.
Robin says she underwent treatment for the past year — including chemotherapy — but says the treatment worked … and doctors now believe she’s cancer free.
During the emotional segment on Howard’s Sirius XM show, Howard said he still gets chills when listening to her story … and admitted, “I gotta be honest, I thought she was a goner.”
Over the past year, Robin has not appeared in the studio, but she’s been doing the show from home while undergoing treatment.
Robin said doctors initially discovered a “mass” in her pelvis last year and decided to perform surgery to investigate the situation.
Howard said Robin told him before the operation that doctors determined she had a cancerous tumor.
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.
