New South Wales Premier Nathan Rees announced in the parliament that Jane would receive the first Special Recognition Award.

"Jane's courage and determination, as well as her fund raising efforts for breast cancer sufferers through the establishment of the McGrath Foundation, are worthy of special recognition," News.com.au quoted Rees as saying.

"All of us have been inspired by Jane's example, all of us were saddened by her death last year," Rees added.
