Dr. William Higgins has devoted his life to caring for his patients. After his mother passed away from Alzheimer's disease in 1992, Dr. William Higgins began volunteering his free time to caring for Alzheimer patients in Westchester. He and his wife, Ellen, who is a nurse selflessly provide support and company to these Alzheimer patients and help them to live their lives with dignity. Dr. Higgins helps them find openings in Alzheimer Treatment Programs.

Dr. William "Billy" Higgins is more than just a Hometown Hero; he is also a big brother and a best friend to his family and his community.
