She hasn’t been in the studio for months, and the circumstances surrounding Robin Quivers’ absence have remained a mystery.

But Monday, the co-host of The Howard Stern Show gave an intimate account of where she’s been:  on the frontlines of her own cancer battle.

“I gotta be honest, I thought she was a goner,” Howard Stern said of his colleague’s plight.

During the discussion on the Sirius XM show, ‘Stern Show’ also tweeted updates on its Twitter account, noting that Quivers said she did not try medical marijuana and that there was a lot of support from the staff.

Fans responded with words of encouragement and well wishes for Quivers.
