New York Yankee legend Bucky Dent's wife Marianne was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer in March, 2014 and fought courageously for 19 months. Through his charity, Legends on the Links, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, Marianne envisioned and created "Embraced with Love", an initiative to provide cancer patients with blankets to help them feel more comfortable during their chemotherapy treatments. Marianne wanted each patient to feel as if they were wrapped in love, comfort and support as they navigated through their own personal journey with cancer. To date, Legends on the Links has given out over 600 blankets in adult and pediatric treatment centers in Florida, New York, Utah, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania. In addition, "Embraced with Love" has since broadened its scope to include providing much needed financial support to caregivers and families affected by long-term illness and/or physical/mental disability.
