Ryan Lewis, Mother Talk Her Battle with HIV, New 30/30 Project

“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.”

That was the story Wednesday morning (April 23) on CBS This Morning as Lewis and son Ryan– the production arm of rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis— gave their first on-camera interview since announcing their support of the 30/30 Project, an organization seeking to build worldwide health clinics to tackle disease, yesterday.
