A $350,000 reward is on offer as police seek to identify the person who shot a Melbourne woman at her home in 2017.

Leonie Stuart, then 52, was almost killed when she was shot through the security door of her Glenroy home in Melbourne's north late on March 2, 2017.

Ms Stuart said the shooting had deteriorated her health and changed her life forever.

"I find it uncomfortable to wear some clothing and I live in constant pain," she said in a statement on Tuesday.

"The physical and mental aspect has been quite taxing and I am constantly reminded of this incident every day of my life."

The victim pleaded for anyone with information to come forward.

"My family and I would like some closure," Ms Stuart said.

Her adult son was also home at the time of shooting, but was not hurt.

Police are still looking for a dark grey four-wheel drive spotted leaving the scene, as well as a mystery caller who later reported a motorcycle in the area.

Police are particularly keen to speak to the caller and hope they are now motivated to come forward.

Detective Acting Inspector Paul Lloyd described the attack as horrendous and said he hoped the reward would lead to a breakthrough.

"We're at a dead end at the moment. Someone out there does know what happened," he told reporters on Tuesday.

Ms Stuart previously said she thought the attack was motivated by revenge, after she testified against her son in court following an earlier police shooting.

Det Acting Insp Lloyd said nothing was being ruled out and police were keeping an open mind about the reasons behind the shooting.

"All cards are on the table, there's no one theory ... they're all on the table, hence why we need people to make contact with us," he said.

The reward is being offered for information leading to conviction of the person or people responsible for Ms Stuart's shooting.
