Transcript for How Howard Stern's health scare made him appreciate life
You know, look, it's a weird thing. I had a health scare. I revealed it in the book. I was hesitant to reveal it on the air. I go into why. When you have a health scare, I'm saying my parents are 96 and 91. I'm supposed to live forever. Not the rest of you. Me. I was really in shock when this happened and they told me I had a 95% chance of cancer. Where? On my kidney. Then they went in and did this very big operation and it turned out to be just a cyst. Oh. That got me thinking what am I most proud of. I'm proud of the interviews we're having and the intention conversations we're having on a microphone. I want that to be in a collection.
