It provides an invaluable gift of demonstrating that we believe our kids can and need to go on to further education. It cuts down on future debt. And if the kids get scholarships, the funds can be used for other education costs. If the kids decide to take a different path, the funds can be used for other family members, or even ourselves. The current enrollment period is underway, and continues through May. This is a great time to invite family and friends to contribute to a plan as a holiday, or birthday gift.

Lynn Julian is one of the women featured in the book "(Extra)Ordinary Women: Ten Inspirational Stories". Lynn shares her experiences as a Boston Marathon bombing survivor dealing with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and PTSD. Lynn's story serves us in multiple ways--having suffered a concussion some years earlier. Having one concussion predisposes a person to others occurring. Because PTSD and TBI are not visible, treatment didn't happen immediately, and it's important to get attention as soon as possible. The healing takes time, and Lynn found she had to self advocate when after 2 years doctors said she would not improve. Lynn kept researching and found clinical trials, ultimately bringing them to her city hospital. She volunteers with an organization that supports victims of terrorism and their families.
