CARING SPIRIT: Jane McGrath's legacy lives on through her foundation.

Jane McGrath was the wife of Australian cricketing great, Glenn McGrath, and the co-founder of the McGrath Foundation.

Before her death in June 2008 her public experience with breast cancer and the impact of her own breast care nurse set her commitment and the mission for the foundation. That was to ensure that every family experiencing breast cancer would have access to a breast care nurse no matter where they lived - for free.

In Jane's words: "Breast cancer doesn't care how old you are, where you live, whether you're a career woman or a mother.

"Breast cancer is a disease that currently affects one in eight Australian women of all ages and backgrounds. Please help the McGrath Foundation support people across Australia. Together, we can make a difference."
