Jane McGrath, wife of the cricketer Glenn McGrath and founder of the McGrath Foundation, passed away yesterday.
After (and during) her battle with Breast Cancer, Jane McGrath became a spokeswoman for breast cancer awareness, and actively worked to provide support for women with Breast Cancer in remote areas, where help is not readily available. She was obviously a warm, caring, enthusiastic and inspiring woman.
Please spare a thought, and/or a prayer for the people whose lives Jane touched, directly and indirectly. She was an inspiration to many women, including my mum. Please visit the McGrath Foundation website to read more about Jane’s passing and the vision that created the foundation.
This post is titled Sad day because while the passing of Jane McGrath is sad… I have some sadness closer to home: my grandmother (on my Dad’s side) was diagnosed with cancer today. We don’t know much more than that at this point; she might have months or a year to live. I’m not very surprised, although a little given her family history (her mother lived to be over 100). Her health hasn’t been 100% for a while. It’s still a sad and slightly confusing time though. I hope that we can all get through it gracefully and have as few regrets as possible in the time we have left with her.
