Ginsburg Hospitalized

http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/02/05/ginsberg.cancer.supreme.court/index.html

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the second female Supreme Court Justice, has announced that she is currently being treated for pancreatic cancer at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.  Justice Ginsberg, who previously was treated for colon cancer, and her husband is also recovering from cancer.  At age 75, she is one of the older justices on the court.

The tumor was a small 1 cm lesion in the head of the pancreas.  These used to be death sentences, but because of the early finding of this lesion, these are now treated much more successfully than in the past.

Our best wishes to the Justice.
