McGrath's Cancer Suffering Wife Told She's in Remission

Jane Mc Grath, Australian cricketing great Glenn McGrath's wife celebrates a decade of extended life after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

She had to undergo a mastectomy when she was 31 then, and had six months of rigorous radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Mrs McGrath was shattered in February last year when the cancer returned after she believed that she had survived the worst.

The ordeal prompted husband Glen to announce his retirement from cricket last November, and with the former fast bowler by her side, a beaming Mrs McGrath yesterday said she was in remission and waiting to get the all clear.

"I am feeling really well," she said. "I celebrate 10 years of survival next week so that is wonderful."

Glen said he was happy to take a back seat and let his wife Jane do all the talking.

"It won't be long before I am known not as Glenn McGrath the cricketer, but Jane McGrath's husband," he said.
