Speaking up for a cause close to his heart, Ryan Lewis announced that his mother, Julie Lewis, has been HIV positive for 30 years.
The singer spoke about the situation, which came about when Ms. Lewis gave birth to her daughter and needed a blood transfusion, as part of an announcement for an organization to advocate for affordable medical care.
She received the coveted Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s Monte Cristo Award earlier this week for her outstanding work on the stage and Meryl Streep took a moment to catch up with GossipCenter at the NYC event.
While on the star-studded red carpet, the Oscar-winning actress revealed the keys to her success, stating its thanks to “Luck, [laughs] that’s a big one. Stamina, a sense of humor, not taking any of it too seriously and not giving up.”
