His is quite an undiscovered story – an immigrant from Denmark, a businessman, foundation creator and performer who became a U.S. citizen largely due in part to former U.S. Congressman Mike Coffman, with assistance from Edie Marks and Dave Evans. Sandgaard focuses on the opioid epidemic. Because of the success of his company, the entrepreneur founded and funded The Sandgaard Foundation to end the complex opioid epidemic. The foundation supports the nationwide efforts to reduce the habitual use of prescription pain medication, prevent addiction and support victims and their families. The foundation also increases public awareness, opens the opportunity to talk openly about opioids, works with nonprofits, healthcare professionals, musicians and the greater community to save lives and change the way we treat pain: together. He was a star guitarist in Denmark and plays again with his band Gaardian.
