Glenn McGrath's kids helping him to cope up with wife's death

Melbourne, Sept 10 : Former Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath has revealed that his kids are helping him to cope up with his wife Jane's tragic death from cancer.

McGrath said that his children's strength over the past few months has helped him get over her wife's demise.

"We're going well, some days are easier than others. The kids are going really well, which is great," the Daily Telegraph quoted him, as saying.

"They're my main priority and the fact that they're handling things so well makes it easier for me.

"We talk about Jane every day and they don't get upset anymore so it's good they can do that," he added.

He said he knew his wife wanted her family "to be happy and getting on with life and that's what we're trying to do".

Jane, who died on June 22 this year, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996. She fought a secondary cancer in her hip and in 2006 was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

She had surgery and was recovering before complications set in.

Her husband stood down from international cricket for eight months to help her recover from radiotherapy.
