“I’m cancer-free. That’s good,” Ginsburg said. She had undergone radiation treatment in August 2019 after doctors discovered a cancerous tumor on her pancreas during a routine blood test.
“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City,” the court’s statement read at the time. “The focused radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas.” The statement added, “Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time.”
Democrats have been panicking about the possibility that the left-leaning Ginsburg might pass away, giving President Trump a seat on the court to fill with a less activist, more Constitutionalist justice.
