“Yes, I’m grateful that I lived,” Julie Lewis, who is HIV positive, says. “But I want to do something to honor all those people that we love dearly who died along the way.”
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis made a surprising announcement today, via their YouTube channel. In a just-posted video, Macklemore revealed that Lewis’ mother, Julie Lewis, has been living with HIV for 30 years. He followed that by announcing the duo’s support for an Indiegogo campaign called the 30/30 Project. The project is seeking $100,000 in donations to build clinics worldwide that will provide healthcare, with the first planned for Malawi.
