Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg undergoes cancer treatment for pancreatic tumor this summer.
No further treatment is needed, according to the statement from the court, adding Ginsburg “tolerated the treatment well.”
Why are we just now hearing about this three weeks later? This is lacking in transparency.
Here’s the full statement: “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 focused radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas. The abnormality was first detected after a routine blood test in early July, and a biopsy performed on July 31 at Sloan Kettering confirmed a localized malignant tumor. As part of her treatment, a bile duct stent was placed. The Justice tolerated treatment well. She cancelled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule. The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time.“

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just completed three weeks of radiation treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the U.S. Supreme Court disclosed Friday.
The radiation therapy, conducted on an outpatient basis, began Aug. 5, shortly after a localized cancerous tumor was discovered on Ginsburg’s pancreas. The treatment included the insertion of a stent in Ginsburg’s bile duct, according to a statement issued by the court.
Doctors at Sloan Kettering said further tests showed no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. The treatment comes just months after Ginsburg was operated on for lung cancer last December. The 86-year-old justice has battled cancer in various forms over the last 20 years. More
Wait, so you’re telling me they found new tumors in late July, and she has successfully undergone radiation treatment in less than a month and she’s completely cured?
Um, pancreatic cancer is almost always fatal…only 5% of those diagnosed make it past 5 years. The left would rather prop this poor woman up to thwart Trump, than just let her live out the rest of her days in peace?

The fact that she hasn’t resigned is proof that she is no longer capable of rendering responsible decisions. Is she trying to hang on until after the 2020 election?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
