    Hello to all of you on this amazing Give A Little Page,

    We are so thankful for your tremendous support during this difficult time and the financial and emotional response has been overwhelming and heartfelt. Such a boost to our spirits to read through so many comments and memories of our years together.

    We finally got the chance to reunite for our birthday and just being together was medicine that no doctor can prescribe.

    A very special group, the Kiwi Quilters group gave us an amazing birthday gift- two of the most beautiful and colourful quilts you’ve ever seen! 22 women from around NZ each made a split heart block then they all got sewn together to become one heart. Kind of like a twin quilt! “The rainbow colours were chosen because of your work with Gay Rights”

    We thank the Kiwi Quliters and honestly people have cheered us up no end with their outpouring of love and kindness.

    At the moment, there’s still a few people fundraising with different events and challenges (check out the mighty mullet chop) so we will keep the give a little page open till the 30th of July for funds still being raised.

    This has been one of the most sad but amazing times in our long career - we love you New Zealand and our international fans and friends - to the moon and back again 💖♥️❤️💕💖♥️❤️

    Jools and Lynda

  • A Topp Update

    Hi Folks,

    Just updating everyone about how the Twins are doing after their respective treatments.

    Jools is resting and recovering after a week of radiation on a new tumour, and it has reduced her pain - so keeping our fingers crossed.

    She has appointments in early May with the Radiation team at Auckland hospital and an MRI scan in 4 weeks’ time to See if the tumour has been eradicated or reduced.

    Lynda has completed her 3rd Chemotherapy session in Ashburton Hospital and like all cancer patients she has her good days and her bad days.

    It is a difficult treatment to deal with, but she has a good support team and a woolly hat from mum to keep her head warm. She has another 3 months of Chemo before any tests or appointments with her Oncology team at Christchurch Hospital.

    On a bright note- now that Jools has completed her treatment she can travel to the South Island - they are scheduled to reunite for their birthday in Mid-May.

    The Twins would like to thank all the amazing Kiwis who have supported them via this Give A Little page❤️.

    Warm regards,

    Mary on behalf of the Topp Twins

    Kia Ora,

    Jools and I would like to thank everyone who has sent us heartfelt messages and to all the wonderful people who have donated to the givealittle page, we feel so blessed and loved. Jools has now finished her daily radiation therapy treatment and I have been resting and hanging out with the toy poodles before my chemo treatment next week.

    Once again thank you so very, very much for your generosity.

    Love Lynda & Jools

    PS We have included a video link the Sunday Program who has generously posted our interview on youtube.
