Robin Quivers, in Her Third Year of Cancer Remission, Advises the Newly Diagnosed to 'Keep Your Friends Close'

Cancer was the last diagnosis radio personality Robin Quivers expected 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."
