Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was seen leaning on a U.S. Marshal after leaving a New York City hospital, DailyMail.com exclusive photos show, a day before it was announced she had completed radiation treatment for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas.
The 86-year-old underwent three weeks of radiation treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital after a routine blood test led to the discovery of a localized malignant tumor last month, the U.S. Supreme Court announced on Friday.
The tumor was ‘treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere’, and no further treatment is needed at this time, the statement said.
On Thursday, Ginsburg was seen holding the hand of a U.S. Marshal as she walked up the stairs into a private residence on the Upper East Side after her appointment at the Howard Laboratory at the Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital.
Ginsburg has been diagnosed with cancer three times already, colon cancer in 1999, pancreatic cancer in 2009 and lung cancer in 2018.
Ginsburg is the oldest sitting U.S. Supreme Court Justice and said it is her ‘dream’ to be on the Supreme Court for as long as former Justice John Paul Stevens, who served for 35 years. Ginsburg has served for 26 years so far.
On Thursday, Ginsburg was seen exiting an SUV wearing a black shawl over a polka-dotted shirt and white trousers that were paired with matching white mules.
She completed the look with black teardrop earrings.
One U.S. Marshal helped her up the steps while another carried her purple backpack.
After her appointment, she was dropped off at a private residence on the Upper East Side.
