Ruth Bader Ginsburg has TWO cancerous growths removed from her lungs

Ruth Bader Gisburg has had two cancerous growths removed from her left lung Friday, the Supreme Court has announced.

The associate justice, 85, had the growths removed after being discovered when she cracked two ribs when she fell in her office last month.

The court said that there are no remaining signs of cancer in her body after the treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

She remains in hospital and will do so for a few days, the court said. 

Ruth Bader Gisburg has had two cancerous growths removed from her lungs, the Supreme Court announced Friday.

It’s Ginsburg’s third bout with cancer since she joined the court in 1993.

The statement said that Ginsburg had a ‘pulmonary lumpectomy’  

 

 

 

 

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said during a Saturday evening appearance in New York that she’s ‘almost repaired’ following last month’s fall.  

The 85-year-old Brooklyn native was interviewed by NPR legal correspondent Nina Totenberg at a sold-out event organized by the Museum of the City of New York.

Sitting on the stage, Ginsburg exuded the kind of vitality that has kept her going to the gym, lifting weights – a routine she was forced to interrupt last month when she fractured three ribs in a fall. 

But ‘The Notorious RBG’ was back to work within days.

When asked how her health is, Ginsburg said ‘it’s fine, thank you,’ adding that her ribs are ‘almost repaired’. 

‘And yesterday was my first day doing my whole workout routine,’ the high-energy New Yorker said – nonchalantly. 

NPR’s Totenberg led the question-and-answer session about Ginsburg’s quarter century on the Supreme Court, and about her life.

Totenberg asked Ginsburg what she thought of a marital sex scene in the new biopic, On the Basis of Sex, with Felicity Jones playing the young Ginsburg. 

It explores how her early legal battles changed the world for women 

‘What I thought of it is that Marty would have loved it,’ the justice deadpanned with a laugh, referring to her late husband. 

The evening sponsored by a museum dedicated to New York and its history turned into Ginsburg’s love letter to the city she said she misses for its ‘tremendous variety’ – in everything from food and ethnicity to music.

What she misses most, Ginsburg said, is going to the Metropolitan Opera, whose stars she has befriended and invites annually to sing at a private Supreme Court gathering.

‘There’s no rival in the world’ to the Met, she said.

On the Basis of Sex hits theaters on Christmas Day.  

The biopic isn’t the first movie to highlight Ginsburg’s storied life. 

Earlier this year, the documentary, The Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was released. 

The film’s story traces her legal work advancing rights for women leading up to her 1993 elevation to the top court, and her role as a justice since.  

Saturday’s conversation will air on public television stations beginning January 2.
