TMZ is reporting that SCOTUS icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently completed a round of chemotherapy to treat “a recurrence of cancer.”
RBG says she began the cancer treatment on May 19 after a February biopsy revealed lesions on her liver. She says the chemo is yielding positive results — and no new disease — and she’ll continue biweekly treatments.
She also insists she’s still fully capable of continuing her Supreme Court duties.
“I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that.”
Read her full statement below.
You might recall, earlier this month she was in the hospital to remove gall stones and treat an infection, which was unrelated to the cancer.
Dear God, protect this woman. Put a healing bubble around her. A world without RBG is unthinkable.
