    Cancer was the last diagnosis radio personality Robin Quiversexpected when she walked into the hospital in May 2012.

    "I was tired," the long-time co-host of Howard Stern's radio show told PEOPLE Friday at T.J. Martell Foundation's Women of Influence luncheon in New York. "That was the only real symptom."

    Quivers first realized something was wrong while she was out of town for a friend's wedding. Instead of attending the wedding, Quivers ended up in the emergency room where doctors told her she had a mass in her pelvis.

    "I got back to New York, and it was very hard to diagnose," she says. "They said I definitely needed surgery, then they finally determined it was some form of cancer but they didn't know what. In a very short period of time I had to make a lot of life-changing decisions."

    Quivers underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment for the grapefruit-sized tumor in her uterus.

    Now in her third year of remission, Quivers actively advocates for cancer research.

    "So many people don't know what to do and they don't know where the resources are," Quivers told PEOPLE. "We can figure out a different way to eradicate this disease, because treatment is sometimes worse than the disease."

    Quivers, 63, is grateful for the support she received after her diagnosis.

    As such, she advises those who have just learned of their diagnosis: "Get your friends around you and keep them close. And get the best medical care you can possibly get."

    And Quivers is taking full advantage of life in remission.

    "We just signed [the radio show] for another five years, so I'll continue with The Howard Stern Show, I'm really happy to be doing it," she says. "I'm open to other options. I might want to write another book, I have a website up about health and will continue to talk about health issues and our physical and our mental well being. I think it all is a part of having a happy life!"

    I'm very happy she's healthy.

    I'm bummed, however, that she turned into a house and lost any bit of hotness she may have had in 2005, 06, and 07.

    I would have bounced on this for sure:

    WTF is she talking about? She was unable to pee because the tumor was pressing on her bladder, that's why she went to the hospital. Why can't anyone from that show tell the truth for a change? :


    Robin Wearing A Catheter. 05/14/12. 8:05am
    Howard said Robin was going to go to a wedding and she found she was unable to pee. She ignored it thinking everything was fine. Then she wasn't able to pee and it became very uncomfortable. Howard asked if her belly was filling up. She said that she could feel it. She said she was driving to get medical help. Robin said she figured she'd either die from it or get it resolved. She said she had to go to an emergency room. She said this urgent care place gave her the catheter. She said that there was so much in there that it took a while to get it out.

    Robin wore better jewelry back then too.

    How is a fat lady a health expert?

    (Everyone needs a really rich boss who for some unknown reason finds them indispensable enough to spend the marbles on way better healthcare than they have themselves.)

    Buchwald and Associates is working overtime to try to keep anyone associated with the show relevant. Shame on People Magazine for not fact checking anything and writing pay for play.

    She had all kinds of symptoms for years which she "treated" with coffee enemas, maple sugar/cayenne pepper/lemon juice, green drink and colonics etc. to detoxify her liver. Not once in all those years did she think of going to a doctor for a physical to see what was actually wrong with her.
