Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announces that she is undergoing chemotherapy to treat a recurrence of liver cancer

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg revealed that she is undergoing chemotherapy for a recurrence of liver cancer, according to The Hill.

  • Ginsburg gave a statement on Friday saying:

"My most recent scan on July 7 indicated significant reduction of the liver lesions and no new disease. I am tolerating chemotherapy well and am encouraged by the success of my current treatment. I will continue bi-weekly chemotherapy to keep my cancer at bay, and am able to maintain an active daily routine."

  • The 87-year-old justice added: "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."
  • She shared that she is keeping up with all of her Court work and intends to do the job fully.
  • This announcement marks the fifth time that Ginsburg has been treated for cancer and comes only six months after Ginsburg declared in January that she was cancer-free.
