Ruth Bader Ginsburg is cancer-free for the fourth time, after beating pancreatic cancer diagnosed last summer.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — also known as the 'Notorious RBG' — told CNN this week that her cancer remains at bay, according to Politico.

“I’m cancer free. That’s good,” she said in an interview published on Wednesday.

The 86-year-old justice was treated for a malignant pancreatic tumor last summer with a three-week course of radiation therapy.

And last January, Ginsburg “missed oral arguments for the first time last January as she recovered from surgery to remove two malignant nodules in her left lung, which were discovered inspecting damage to her ribs from a recent fall,” Politico noted.

Ginsburg also beat cancer twice before, “having been treated for colorectal cancer in 1999 and an earlier bout of pancreatic cancer in 2009.”
