Claudia & Anya Education Security

Kirsten fought an incredible battle against cancer for two years. She was a loving, protective, and creative mother. The heartbreak experienced as result of being taken from her children after only ten years is indescribable—the love she gave to Anya and Claudia in those years was enough to last a lifetime. Family Schuster is embarking on a daunting emotional and financial journey without her. Kirsten valued education and was fierce in her desire to ascertain the well-being of her children in her absence. In an effort to realize this desire, we established Scholars Choice  529 college investment plans  for each of the girls.

We request, in lieu of sending flowers or similar gifts that you help grant Kirsten’s wish to secure the Girls’ future by making a contribution to their college saving plans though this website.  Rudy (Claudia and Anya's dad) will equally divide and deposit 100% of the funding raised here in the Scholars Choice accounts. The funding will remain in the accounts and accrue interest until it is drawn upon by Claudia and Anya to pay college tuition in approximately 9 to 14 years. Thank you VERY much for for remembering Kirsten.
