A Look at Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Health History

As the oldest member of the Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health is a national point of interest.

The 85-year-old has said she'llย  stay on the court ย as long as she can do the job "full steam." But she's had a few health problems over the years.ย  She's a two-time cancer survivor.

She was treated for colon cancer in 1999, and a decade later she was treated for early stage pancreatic cancer.

In 2014, she had a stent placed in one of her coronary arteries.

And on Thursday,ย  she was hospitalized ย with three fractured ribs after a fall.

Despite those challenges, "the Notorious RBG" has kept up with her notoriously hardย  workout routine .

Her long-time trainer says it plays a key role in her staying strong.
