The Hill has reached Ginsburg, 86, is the oldest member of the High Court and has been sitting on his nine-member bank for 26 years. She had cancer several times during her tenure. In 1999, she was operated for colorectal cancer, in 2009 for pancreatic cancer. In December, she was operated on again to remove two malignant nodules in the lungs.
Her most recent treatment, announced by the Supreme Court on Friday, was the fight against a tumor that was discovered in early July during a routine blood test and performed on an outpatient basis at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. As part of the treatment, a stent was also introduced into her bile duct.
The Supreme Court said Friday that Ginsburg's treatment was "well tolerated" and that "the tumor has definitely been treated and there is no evidence of disease anywhere else". "Concerns about Ginsburg's health and the ability to continue as righteousness have led some to donate their organs while others have recommended wrapping them in bubble wrap.
Lovingly referred to by fans as RBG, Ginsburg has developed into a cultural icon for liberals, which they consider a bulwark against President Trump who seeks to use more conservative judges.
