One half of chart-topping duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the hitmaker has opened up about his mum’s health battle in a new Rolling Stone article, confessing she contracted the disease years before he was born – but didn’t realise she was ill until her son was a baby.
Lewis reveals his sister was also born HIV-free, and the lawsuit over the transfusion put him through college.
The DJ admits his mother was given just three years to live when he was young, but she’s still alive.
How can you ever realise you’re ill when you’re not suffering, i.e. not ill? Is it not suspicious that both children were born HIV- from an untreated mother; one who was tested in a likely window of ‘false-positives’?
While his mother is thankfully alive, has she suffered any side effects from wholly unnecessary medication? We can never know if her HIV positivity was chronic enough to require some sort of intervention.
