Last year, following Colleen’s diagnosis, Jess and Lisa moved back home to their native Australia after living in America for years for their music career.

Lisa appeared to have been absent from the family moment, as Jess wrote: ‘Lisa we are imagining you in the middle my twinnie.’ 

The missing twin also commented: ‘Love you both so much.’

Lisa and Jessica’s mother Colleen was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia last year – which causes her thinking, memory and movement to slowly deteriorate.

In a statement to The Courier Mail in June 2018, the sisters said: ‘After several years of misdiagnosis, our mum Colleen has finally (been) given a diagnosis of Lewy Body Dementia with progressive supranuclear palsy.’

‘It has been an incredibly heartbreaking and frustrating time trying to find a definitive diagnosis. We have had incredible support from friends and family.’

‘We wanted to share our beautiful mum’s story so that we can hopefully raise awareness for people and their families affected by this disease.’

The Veronicas have since bought a rural property in Queensland in a bid to be closer to their mother.

The chart-topping sisters paid $695,000 for a rural retreat in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, north of Brisbane.

The pair are believed to be building the property to live together with their partners- Jessica’s fiancé Kai and Lisa’s actor husband Logan Huffman.
