Robin Quivers survives cancer, writes book

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM - Robin Quivers, radio personality and longtime sidekick to Howard Stern, beat cancer.

She returned to the radio waves last week after a 17-month absence.

Quivers used the time off-air to finish her new book, 'The Vegucation of Robin.'

"The whole time I was going through this, I looked fine. There was no indication, but I was very tired. (I felt) this incredible fatigue and I didn’t know what it was," said Quivers.

Stern stepped in, big time, said his 32-year long sidekick when she finally told him she had cancer.

Stern offered "the best of everything" for Quivers throughout her surgery and follow-up treatments.

The new book was a work in progress when Quivers was diagnosed with uterine cancer.

"The Vegucation of Robin started before all this happened. I had been through other health issues years ago. I changed my diet. I learned to really eat for me. I regained my health. I became a person who could barely walk a block to one who could run a marathon," said Quivers who is a vegan.

You can meet Quivers this week at two locations where she'll be signing copies of 'The Vegucation of Robin.'
