I don't want to delve too much into Brandon's personal life because it's not my place, but Alzheimer's has played a big role in the last few years of his life. Several years back his dad was diagnosed with early stages of Alzheimer's. On Brandon's birthday a bunch of us had dinner at a local restaurant and then headed out to our cars. As his dad was walking across the street a drunk driver slammed into him in front of all of us. Many bones were broken and he immediately went from the early stages of Alzheimer's to the advanced stages. He passed away a couple of years later.
Since then Brandon and his family have been big supporters of the Alzheimer's Association and Brandon has been making paintings to raise money. Please e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in ordering. If you would like to donate you can do so here.
