After successful treatment for pancreatic cancer this summer, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she's 'cancer free.'
This was her fourth round of the disease, and she told CNN that her doctors say she now has no evidence of disease.
From Colby Itkowitz at the Washington Post:
The 86-year-old justice, one of the oldest to serve on the Supreme Court, offered the health update to CNN in an interview in her chambers Tuesday evening.
"I'm cancer free. That's good," Ginsburg said, with CNN reporting that she was "sounding energized and speaking animatedly."
Ginsburg's intensive radiation treatment for a malignant tumor on her pancreas in August had followed a diagnosis of lung cancer at the end of 2018 that resulted in the removal of part of her left lung and forced her to miss oral arguments for the first time in 25 years on the bench.
