Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court, has been diagnosed with the “beginning stages of dementia, probably Alzheimer’s,” she said Tuesday.

O’Connor revealed her diagnosis in a letter to the nation distributed by the Supreme Court, writing that doctors diagnosed her “some time ago.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“As this condition has progressed, I am no longer able to participate in public life,” she wrote. “Since many people have asked about my current status and activities, I want to be open about these changes, and while I am still able, share some personal thoughts.”

O’Connor, 88, was nominated to the Supreme Court by then-President Ronald Reagan in 1981 and confirmed by the Senate unanimously.

O’Connor served on the court for 25 years and retired in 2006 to help take care of her husband, John, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
