Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says She Is 'Cancer Free'
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Says She Is 'Cancer Free'.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
recently sat down for an interview with CNN
and opened up about her health.
After undergoing intensive radiation
treatment for pancreatic cancer in 2019,
Ginsburg is going into 2020 “cancer free.”.
I’m cancer free.
That’s good, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, via CNN.
Although it is her fourth battle with
cancer, CNN reports she was “speaking
animatedly” and “sounding energized.”.
Ginsburg first beat the disease in 1999
after being diagnosed with colon cancer.
In 2009, she underwent
treatment again, this time
for pancreatic cancer.
She was then forced to miss oral
arguments for the first time in
25 years in late 2018 after being
diagnosed with lung cancer.
Her bill of clean health is a
relief to Democrats, as the loss of Ginsburg
would allow current president Donald Trump
to fill her seat with a conservative judge.
The addition of another right-leaning seat
would effectively cement Republican dominance
in the Supreme Court for generations.
