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.'

    “I was supposed to be dead before last Easter," said Valerie Harper about her diagnosis of cancer in the lining around her brain.  Harper's indomitable spirit and the support from fans of her character 'Rhoda' in the 1970s hit series 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' has kept her going. "It’s a tasty headline," said Harper about the magazine where the inaccurate report was made.
