RYAN LEWIS AND MOM TALK AIDS WITH ELVIS DURAN

ELVIS DURAN AND THE Z100 MORNING SHOW

Ryan Lewis With Mom On Elvis Duran




Multi-Grammy Award winning artist Ryan Lewis stopped by Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show to talk about the launch of the 30/30 Project. Julie Lewis, mother of Ryan and 30-year HIV Survivor, founded this campaign. The 30/30 Project seeks to bring healthcare facilities to communities impacted by HIV/AIDS, as well as offer compressive general healthcare. To celebrate the mark of surviving for 30 years with HIV, Julie, Ryan, and the 30/30 Project seek to build medical centers worldwide that will sustain for at least 30 years. The launch of the 30/30 Project also coincides with this week’s 30th anniversary announcing the discovery that the HIV virus leads to AIDS. During the interview this morning, Elvis donated $5,000.00 on behalf of the Morning Show.



When asked about the reasoning behind the project, Julie said, “I want to do something big. The 30/30 Project is that big idea. We believe that healthcare is a human right. We have the knowledge and we have the treatments. Life threatening diseases like HIV/AIDS can be managed. What people need is access.” For more information on The 30/30 Project, please visit www.3030project.org and www.indiegogo.com/projects/30-30-project, where incentive based donations are being accepted.



ON HIS MOTHER JULIE DISCOVERING SHE HAD HIV/AIDS IN 1990



“Ryan was two and my eldest child was six. We waited four years before we told our children, and at that point, being a high school teacher and having my status public at that point, I actually started speaking out and I did that for 10 years.”



ON RYANS MISSION WITH THE 30/30 PROJECT



“My mom has been working for an organization called Construction for Change for the last few years. It is basically a nonprofit that builds infrastructure – from schools to community centers, to medical centers. The 30/30 Project, hitting that 30-year mark that was not anticipated, not expected for our family. When she was diagnosed she was given three to five years to live. Now, living 30 years we wanted to do something to commemorate that.”



ON THE DIFFERENCE IN HEALTHCARE AND WHY CERTAIN AREAS NEED HELP THE MOST



“It’s access. All of these drugs exist to those who have HIV/AIDS today, it is a manageable disease if you can get access to medication but there is no access.”

On the Glee cast after the passing of Cory Monteith



“You know, a lot of people, really sort of you know were, concerned about us going back to work and wondering what that would be like. But at the end of the day, you know, we are a family and we did go through this together so to be there everyday and to have the support from each other is so important. And like I said, I’m just really grateful for them and what we do everyday we do in memory and we’re really proud of the work that we do for our fans and for our show. You know, what we created I don’t think anyone will every be able to do again with a show, that you know, came from such an interesting concept, you know Ryan Murphy is such a genius. I’m just really proud of it.”



On staying positive and looking forward



“I feel really thankful for the great people that I have in my life. To be able to continue to work and have things that I’m really proud of, I think that everything that I have been through, I have an opportunity right now to be a good role model and be a good sort of person. I have amazing fans that have really supported me in everything that I have done, so if I have the opportunity right now to be inspiring or encouraging for anyone – make something positive out of it.”


On Glee’s success



“It’s been really great. I think that Glee has really opened the doors to really bringing, you know, music into people’s homes and now whether it’s in other films or other shows, I’m really thankful for what we did. It’s, like I said, opened people up to music again and that I’m really, really proud of.” 



On the release date of her album



“March 4th. It’s my favorite day of the year. I love March 4th. For me, it means so much. You march forth in life. You have to. It just seems so positive to me… I didn’t pick the day, I had a day in my mind but I got an email and they were like ‘Oh, it’s going to come out March 4th’ and I was like ‘That is so meant to be’. It so, it just feels so right to me, so that’s sort of been the theme of everything right now: to march forth with such strength, so that’s what I’m trying to do.” 



On changing the album after Cory Monteith’s death



“When Cory passed away in July we sort of stopped and looked at the record and thought, ‘Well is there anything now that we want to change or add?’ It was so perfect the way it was. What I love so much about the album, with the exception of two songs he [Cory Monteith] heard every single song. He was like my biggest fan and critic and he loved every song! He would give me all of his notes and I took every one into consideration.”
