Farewell Jane McGrath

Wife of Australia's cricket great, Glenn McGrath, has passed away after a long battle with breast cancer. Jane McGrath first contracted breast cancer back in 1996 and after treatment the disease returned in her hip. She valiantly fought the disease with the support of not only her husband and family but the whole of Australia. A very sad day for Glenn McGrath and their two children.
Am sure all of Australians offer deepest condolences and sincerest of sympathies for a family the public come to know and love not just from cricket but in the way Jane McGrath faced the demon of cancer with dignity. A battle she sadly lost .

How sad.

It is, she worked so hard to make the public aware of breast cancer. Always smiling and looking beyond her own illness. Terrible for them all.

Yes, very sad and not only Australians will feel this.
