Radio personality Robin Quivers revealed this morning on The Howard Stern Show that she has been battling uterine cancer for the past twelve months.
Quivers, 61, is shock jock Howard Stern's co-host on Sirius XM. He has said on more than one occasion, "I'd quit radio if I ever lost her as a partner."
Howard told his audience a year ago when Quivers first left the show to seek treatment, "Doing a show without Robin is like cutting off my left arm. Or my right arm. Or maybe both. She is my backbone, you understand."
"When I lose courage, Robin always has the courage. She is always the brave one. Always the brave one with me. I can go to her, and I can always rely on her."
For the past year Robin has been doing her radio gig from home when she has been feeling well enough, after undergoing the removal of cancerous endometrial (uterine) tissue from several internal organs including her bladder, followed by a course of chemotherapy.
Stern had his doubts that his working partner would ever return to the studio. He admitted this morning, "I gotta be honest, I thought she was a goner."
Robin reported this morning that her doctors believe that the year-long treatment worked and she is cancer free. Stern said afterward that he still gets chills hearing her tell her story.
