Alexander “Sandy” Halperin, DDS, was diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2010 at the age of 60. As a person living with memory difficulties, Sandy has chosen to remain proactive in his quest for knowledge and not allow the disease to define him. As a member of the National Alzheimer’s Association 2012 Early-Stage Advisory Group, Sandy helped to bring awareness to what he calls “invisible illnesses” or medical problems that may not be readily seen by others. His goal continues to be to speak on behalf of patients and their caregivers dealing with a cognitive impairments to a variety of audiences, and to raise awareness and funds toward Alzheimer's research, treatments and cures.

He is being followed by CNN to tell his story and acting as an invaluable resource to the medical and aging in place industry. Sandy does this because he has a huge heart and truly wants to help others. He does not get paid for his tireless efforts. Sandy's wife is in chemotherapy, which means both of them had to retire much earlier than they had anticipated.

Recently, Sandy approached GrandCare Systems to use the system as a second brain. Sandy is a larger than life person, so naturally he quickly became a close friend. This is the effect that Sandy has on all who get a chance to meet him and/or hear his story. He is truly an inspiration to all of us.

GrandCare would like to help Sandy and his family to remain financially sound. Will you help support Sandy's cause? 100% of ALL proceeds (after fundrazr's and pay pal's fees) go DIRECTLY to Sandy and his family. GrandCare is not collecting any of this money. No donation is too small. Please consider donating today and share with your friends.
