TWELVE months and more than 20 fundraisers later young Alana Reid is off to America for surgery that will finally give her the gift of hearing.

Alana's mother Emma Reid said she was elated last week after reaching her target of $108,343 that will see the Reid family head overseas early next month to the California Ear Institute for the operation.

"I burst into tears and couldn't speak."

The Reid family will make their long anticipated journey on August 10.

Check out tomorrow's NewsMail to read about the family's fundraising journey.
