I may disagree with Justice RBG aggressively on her interpretation of the law, but I hope and pray for a full recovery, no matter the odds. Cancer is a ***** that needs to be eradicated from the face of the Earth. Far too many people gone from that wicked disease, to include several wonderful loved ones.

Don't know about you, but the future of my country is more important than some random snowflakes feelings.

Agree. But sadly, cancer mutates. It's unlikely it will ever be completely eliminated. The best we can hope for is big improvements in treatment.

Or it was.

She is literally the luckiest cancer survivor ever.
She is a goner. It is pancreatic cancer.

Try not to sound so gleeful. According to the article, the tumor is gone and there is NED.

Pancreatic cancer is not an immediate death sentence. I heard of a guy who survived for 10 years after a stage 4 diagnosis. Then it came back and he died in one day frm an allergic reaction from the chemo. There is no predicting the future with anyone with cancer.

If she dies soon, it will be the biggest fight in recent history in DC if Trump gets to appoint a Conservative to replace her.

The old lady is looking like a walking skeleton these days. She's a tough old bird, I'll her that. I think she's trying to hang on as long as she can hoping a Dem will get elected in. LOL.

I knew of a similar case. Survived 10 years but then when to the doctor due to constipation and they detected the reoccurrence and hew was dead in two weeks. From what I hear part of the survival rate issue with pancreatic cancer is that it tends to get detected at a late stage.

Yeah, if you thought the Kavanagh hearings were ugly, buckle up.
