I didn't know that Ryan Lewis' mother, Julie Lewis has been a survivor of HIV for 30 plus years until several days ago when I watched their interview on Anderson Cooper 360. Many people nowadays think that HIV/AIDS crisis is a thing in the past, but it's still a reality for thousands and thousands of patients and their family members around the world.
Ryan Lewis and his mom Julie together with the help of Macklemore started a project called The 30/30 Project which builds medical centers around the world for the people who are in need of desperate care in treating HIV/AIDS and other disease.
Their core message is "Healthcare Is A Human Right" which don't apply to many in poverty and for those who struggle to keep or seek clinical care. There are many great medications and healthcare that are available to those who can afford it, but people are still dying because they can't afford the basic needs of medicine to keep the disease at bay.
What Ryan Lewis, Julie Lewis, Macklemore and others that are involved in this project have tried to accomplish is something extraordinary and I would love to be part of it.
If you wish to contribute even in a small way, go to 30.30 Project and donate.
Also you can watch 2 video clips of 30/30 Project below and Ryan & Julie's interview on Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN.
