Kiwi favourites Lynda and Jools Topp, aka The Topp Twins, have shared the pain of their cancer during with their fans. 

Taking to social media to thank their fans for the support, the sisters shared images and stories from their ‘hard journey of surgery [and] chemo’. 

Jools was first diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 48 in 2006, but recovered after having her left breast removed and undergoing chemotherapy.

She began to feel unwell again in 2021 and discovered that her cancer had metastasised. 

Lynda found out she had breast cancer not long after, being diagnosed with Grade 3 invasive breast cancer in December 2021. 

She underwent a double mastectomy and is receiving intensive chemotherapy.

Today they posted an update on their Facebook page.

“It has been eight months since Lynda was diagnosed with Grade 3 Breast Cancer and six months since Jools was discovered with a new tumour in her rib cage,” they said.

“We are both alive and kicking but it has been a pretty hard journey of surgery chemo and for Jools radiation therapy.

“The love and support we have had from Kiwis and fans around the world has been amazing and we thank each and every one of you who have sent messages and donated to our Givealittle page.

“To all of you lots of love.”
