Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been undergoing cancer treatment, she reportedly said in a statement Friday.

“I have often said I would remain a member of the Court as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that,” Ginsburg said in a statement after a “recurrence of cancer.”
