Ruth Bader Ginsburg Looks Frail in First Public Appearance Since Treatment For “Malignant” Tumor Found on Her Pancreas (VIDEO)
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg looked very frail on Monday in her first public appearance since her radiation treatment for a “malignant” tumor found on her pancreas.
Ginsburg on Monday accepted an honorary law degree from the University of Buffalo where she briefly acknowledged her recent cancer scare.
The 86-year-old justice walked very slowly as she was escorted to her seat.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 86, underwent three weeks of radiation treatment for a “localized malignant tumor” found on her pancreas on July 31st.
The US Supreme Court disclosed Friday that Ginsburg received treatment this summer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
The treatment included the insertion of a stent in Ginsburg’s bile duct, according to a statement by the court.
Ginsburg in December of 2018 also had surgery to remove cancer from her left lung.
According to doctors, further tests have shown that the disease has not spread throughout her body, however a “bile duct stent” is a treatment typically used in advanced cases to provide end of life care.
Ginsburg looks very feeble and after two cancer scares in one year, she should respectfully resign from her position as a Supreme Court Justice.
