Robin Quivers Beats Cancer

Howard Stern's longtime co-host Robin Quivers revealed to listeners that she has overcome her year-long battle with cancer, which came as a surprise to much of the Sirius XM audience.

Earlier this week, Quivers discussed that she's been dealing with the condition over the past year while continuing her duties at home. Quivers also talked about the cancer in detail and said she underwent major surgery to remove a large tumor.

"When it all was said and done, this had developed from endometrial tissue, which is uterine tissue, but endometriosis is when that uterine tissue grows outside of where it belongs,” she said. “And this is what had happened. There was endometrial tissue outside of where it belonged and the cancer developed from that.”

While keeping the condition away from the public, Quivers said she had the support of her staff during the difficult time-- expecially Howard.

"It was just a f-cking crazy thing that came out of left field," he said on-air. "[...] Robin means more to me than anything. Seeing her go through this just f-cking tore me up."

Doctors now say she is cancer-free.
