On Monday Robin Quivers, Howard Stern’s long-time radio sidekick, joined Dr. Oz to endorse her new health book, and also discuss her secret battle with pelvic cancer and the life struggles it brought her.
The lovable Robin Quivers appeared on Monday’s episode of “The Dr. Oz Show" to promote her new book, "The Veguction of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life" and why she credits the plant-based diet for her recovered health. The 61-year-old radio personality talked candidly with Dr. Oz about her ability to continue working throughout cancer treatment and recovery and Howard Stern’s emotional reaction as he learned of Quiver’s diagnosis.
He (Howard Stern) immediately said, ‘oh Robin, what are we going to do? How are we, what will we, who do we know? What can we do to get you better?’
Howard Stern threw himself into Robin Quivers' treatment and was with her for the entire cancer journey.
And it became a we project from that moment on. So, every day he was on the phone with me, he was helping me to get my team together so that I could get the proper treatment, and he was with me every step of the way. He helped me make decisions. He listened to me. He cried with me. We did everything together through this.
With a united front, Robin Quivers and Howard Stern kept the radio audience informed, however, she explained to Dr. Oz that the broadcast team didn’t want to damper the comedy show with frequent cancer talk and adjusted the commentary about her health.
You can't tell people every day what's going on and keep them up with this for the entire time. So, we just said we don't know what's going on, and we don’t know how this is going to turn out. You can't possibly do a comedy show every day when people are worried if you're going to be there the next day. So, we just decided we're just going to shut up, and we're just going to go on and the audience honored that request.
