& # 39; Our thoughts and prayers are with her & # 39 ;, said the president late Friday evening on the lawn of the White House.

& # 39; It's a very serious situation, I hope she's doing well. She has been through a lot; she is strong, very tough.

& # 39; But we wish her all the best. & # 39; The president made the remark as he prepared to go to France to meet with the industrial nations of the G7, including Germany. He also called the head of Federal Reserve Chairman Jay Powell and promised to beat China with & # 39; little spit & # 39; causing the Dow one day to drop 623 points in his speech to the media.

On Thursday, Ginsburg was seen leaning on an American marshal after leaving New York City Hospital, the Howard Laboratory at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital, the day before it was announced that she had completed radiation treatment for cancer of her pancreas.

The tumor was & # 39; definitively treated and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere & # 39 ;, and no further treatment is currently required, the statement said.

Ginsburg has been diagnosed three times with cancer, colon cancer in 1999, pancreatic cancer in 2009 and lung cancer in 2018.

Ginsburg is the oldest sitting US Supreme Court Justice and said it was her & # 39; dream & # 39; is to be at the Supreme Court for as long as the former Justice John Paul Stevens, who has served for 35 years. Ginsburg has served 26 years so far.

In an official statement, the US Supreme Court said: “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has today completed a three-week course in stereotactic ablative radiotherapy at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

& # 39; Targeted radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas. The abnormality was first discovered after a routine blood test in early July and a biopsy performed on July 31 with Sloan Kettering confirmed a localized malignant tumor.

& # 39; A bile duct tent was placed as part of her treatment. The judiciary tolerated the treatment well. She canceled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has also maintained an active schedule.

& # 39; The tumor has been definitively treated and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Justice Ginsburg continues to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is required at this time. & # 39;

Last month, Ginsburg rejected concerns about her health in an interview with NPR, grinning at a late senator who claimed she would soon be dead after her diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in 2009.

& # 39; There was a senator, I think it was after my pancreatic cancer, who announced with great joy that I would die within six months, & # 39; she remembered.

& # 39; That senator, whose name I have forgotten, is now dead himself, & # 39; laughed Ginsburg and the interviewer, & # 39; and I still live very much. & # 39;

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly cancers and only has a survival rate of 20 percent in the first year after diagnosis and a survival rate of 7 percent for five years.

Although Ginsburg could not remember the name of the senator who wished her dead, it seems as if she is talking about the former senator to Jim Bunning in Kentucky.

In February 2009, the same year that Ginsburg was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Bunning suggested at the Republican party Lincoln Day Dinner in Kentucky that Ginsburg would soon be replaced.

He said that Ginsburg & # 39; had bad cancer. Of the kind that does not help you. & # 39;

& # 39; Although she was operated on most of the time, nine months is the longest time anyone would live, & # 39; said Bunning at the time.

The Lincoln Day dinner was on a Saturday and Ginsburg was back at work that Monday.

In 2017, seven years after his retirement from the Senate, Bunning suffered a stroke and died at the age of 85 – a year younger than Ginsburg now.

When lung cancer was diagnosed last year and underwent surgery to remove cancer tumors, there were rumors that President Donald Trump would have his third chance to influence the composition of the Supreme Court.

Exactly on his appointment, he nominated Neil Gorsuch to take the seat of the late justice Antonin Scalia, and in 2018, Bret Kavanaugh nominated after then-justice Anthony Kennedy announced that he would withdraw from the Supreme Court.
