Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Recovering After Surgery
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
It was not surprising that our Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg selected the day of Winter Solstice, December 21 or 22 (in Northern Hemisphere) or June 21 or 22 (in Southern Hemisphere), 2018, to have her malignant growths removed from one of her lungs. These cancerous nodules started from her lung, were isolated and removed from her lung. It’s the third time she has been treated for her cancer since 1999. CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang reports, in the video “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recovering after surgery“, below:
We wish Justice Ginsburg a speedy recovery!

Ruth Bader Ginsburg (/ˈbeɪdər
Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Russian Jewish immigrants. Her older sister died when she was a baby, and her mother, one of her biggest sources of encouragement, died shortly before Ginsburg graduated from high school. She then earned her bachelor’s degree at Cornell University, and became a wife and mother before starting law school at Harvard, where she was one of the few women in her class. Ginsburg transferred to Columbia Law School, where she graduated tied for first in her class. Following law school, Ginsburg turned to academia. She was a professor at Rutgers Law School and Columbia Law School, teaching civil procedure as one of the few women in her field.
Ginsburg spent a considerable part of her legal career as an advocate for the advancement of gender equality and women’s rights, winning multiple victories arguing before the Supreme Court. She advocated as a volunteer lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union and was a member of its board of directors and one of its general counsels in the 1970s. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter appointed her to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where she served until her appointment to the Supreme Court. Ginsburg has received considerable attention in American popular culture; dubbed the “Notorious R.B.G.”, she is seen as a symbol of public resistance, private resilience, and justice.
