Lynn "Mutti" Saey
Mutti lived in Kewanee, IL for the majority of her life. She was a single mother to five children. After raising her children, she returned to school to become an elementary school teacher. She brought joy to her family, friends, and students alike. She always gave of herself to anyone in need. After being diagnosed with Primary CNS Lymphoma in 1999, her first concern was never herself but of her family and friends. She courageously battled this disease for 12 years and lost her life in July 2011. To continue the legacy of Mutti's giving spirit,  MOMENTS by Mutti was created.
MOMENTS by Mutti is the brainchild of both family and  friends of Lynn Saey, "Mutti." MOMENTS' mission is to help not only the patients who are battling cancer, but to support their family members as well, since battling this disease necessitates not only great medical care, but requires an entire support system. The goal of MOMENTS by Mutti is to assist in building "moments" for families that will one day will become precious memories by sending patients and their families on short trips to create such "moments."
