Matisse Reid returns home

Twelve-year-old Matisse Reid, from Hawke's Bay, arrives home after spending the last six years in America receiving treatment. Matisse had a rare condition which prevented her from digesting food and was fed through an intravenous line for 10 years. Her parents convinced the government to cover a $1.8 million intestinal transplant operation in Pittsburg.
