After 9/11, Robin said, “I thought I would be one of the people who couldn’t help myself out of that (World Trade Center) building. If I was there, someone would have to help me. I’d be one of those people you had to come and get. And I thought, this is not any way to live and I need to figure out what’s wrong.”
What she figured out, and how she feels it helped her body to be strong when the cancer hit her in 2012, has been detailed in her book, “The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life.” The book, which is available in stores now, is not a diet book or a cookbook, but it explains her journey from that revelation to getting her daily nutrition on track.
“When you consider that I went through chemo and radiation and hardly had any side effects — I saw other people and they were going through the same thing I was, my situation wasn’t complicated by other illnesses, other medications,” she said. “Basically I was strong going in.”
“I feel fantastic,” she said. “I’ve been declared cancer-free for about three or four months now. It’s just a matter of still recovering at home, past all that treatment that kept me out of the studio for this long. But I’ve been feeling really good.”
