Yes. You should start the process right away because before you turn 21 you only have to wait 10 months or so, but after you turn 21 then you have to wait many years (up to 6) before you can immigrate.

Your grandfather cannot sponsor you a green card but he can sponsor you to come to US on a visitor visa or as a person to take care of him. Like I said over the phone, if you ask your grandfather to give me a call, there may be a way to bring you over. Good luck!
