After 15 months of secretly battling cancer, long-time Howard Stern sidekick and close friend Robin Quivers finally felt comfortable revealing her illness on this morning’s show after she says she has beat it. For the first time on air, Robin discussed her “grapefruit sized” tumor, her extensive treatments, and how Howard’s support gave her the strength to fight on.
While Howard is known for being an uncensored, shocking radio personality, his most important job yet may just have been that of loving and supportive friend. “At one point I said to him ‘they should make a Hallmark movie about us,'” quivers joked. “It is that kind of crazy, amazing relationship.”
Howard and Robin also explained the decision to keep her cancer secret from fans, citing her time on the air as the only time she was “pain free.”
