Michael Irvin Says His Wife Sandy Has Alzheimer’s Disease

by

FILE – NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin speaks on air during the NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Kickoff broadcast before the start of an NFL football game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Miami Dolphins, Nov. 11, 2021, in Miami Gardens, Fla.  Michael Irvin shared some heartbreaking personal news this week: that his 58-year-old wife Sandy has Alzheimer’s disease. He told the Star-Telegram that Sandy has been struggling with the disease for 5-6 years and receives 24-hour care from a live-in caretaker. The couple began dating when Irvin was still in college, and were married in 1990. Younger-onset Alzheimer’s is rare but can strike people in their 40s and 50s.
