Ginsburg, the oldest justice on the nine-member court, announced on July 17 that she is receiving chemotherapy for a recurrence of cancer. She had suffered from five bouts of cancer, most recently a recurrence in early 2020 when a biopsy revealed lesions on her liver. She had said that chemotherapy was yielding "positive results" and that she was able to maintain an active daily routine.
The liberal justice, who has had four earlier bouts with cancer, said her treatment so far has succeeded in reducing lesions on her liver. US President Donald Trump on Friday evening upon hearing about her death said, "She led an amazing life. What else can you say?" "She was an amazing woman whether you agree or not she was an amazing woman who led an amazing life."
