    Today Robin gave an update on her health, and announced that she's on her way to being declared cured of cancer.

    "I feel you're already cured of cancer," Howard responded.

    Robin corrected him: "No, I'm cancer-free, not cured. It takes five years of being cancer-free before they'll declare you cured."

    What happened to all the book promotion Robin did last year, where time and time again she proclaimed herself to be cured of cancer?

    From her Rolling Stone interview:
    Quivers' doctors told her in July that she's cancer-free: "Cured" was the word they used.

    From Robin's announcement on the Stern Show:
    "About three months ago, I go into my doctor's office, she just looks at everything, she goes, 'You're cured,'" said Quivers, who has been broadcasting remotely for over a year.

    E Online: Robin Quivers: Howard Stern Sidekick Says She's Fully Cured of Cancer

    Examiner: Robin Quivers reveals how she was cured of cancer

    Why this rewrite a year later?

    Because maybe she was getting way too much flak for her "cured" statement.
    Maybe because she's fucking insane.

    Robin also originally claimed the doctor said she didn't have to go back for periodic re-checks or scans, now she says she's been going every few weeks. No one on that show can tell the truth about anything. The story of her illness and recovery is about as believable as Yoda's.

    Cancer free is bullshit. No such thing. Just because they can't find any signs of cancer doesn't mean that you're really cancer free. Cancer is a bitch.

    Cured Robin has evolved into cancer-free Robin.

    My guess is that the cancer is back and this is their (utterly insane) way of easing their 8 remaining listeners into it.

    Nobody reads the "old as a stone" anyway. It's main competition is the AARP GAZETTE. More people would have read it If she had spray painted the info on the side of a building

    Robin IS a cancer. She's a bloated lump on the lymph node of the stern show which is already riddled with disease.

    Here's some quotes from the original story about the CURE:

    Robin's Battle With Cancer Discussed. 09/09/13. 7:30am
    Robin said she went through the radiation and she tolerated that well. Robin said they were scanning her every few months to make sure everything was okay. Robin said she had the radiation and then the Chemo. She had four rounds. Robin said she had surgery to reverse the Ileostomy. Robin said this wasn't going to be over until after the new year. Robin said about 3 and a half months ago she went to the doctor and she told her that she was cured. Robin said she was told that she was done and she didn't have to do anything else. Robin said they told her she was cured.

    Gary said that Robin is cured now. Ralph said he thought that you had to go a certain amount of time before you can say that. Benjy said Robin's doctor told her that it wasn't even in remission, she's just cured.

    Holiday VACATION

    Will Robin be Back after the new year?

    At the END of the last contract(when howard surprised) announce he signed a NEW 5 Year contract with Sirius,
    He told Robin She needed to Negotiate her own contract

    She Said something to the effect:
    That she had her "mind" set there would be NO new contract.
    She went on to say (from what i remember) that she doesn't know if she wants to commit to a full five years. :pillz:

    All of this was said on the show a year ago, and yet today she acted like the notion of being declared "cured" so early in the recovery process is nonsense.

    Maybe Robin misquoted the doctor who told her she was cured, or maybe Robin flat-out lied for the sake of a good story. But the 34 really came out today when she chose to correct the headline-making choice of words she used a year ago -- "cured" -- without accepting any blame at all for spreading that misinformation.
