Inspired by his own journey of struggling to safely store and carry his hormone therapy injections discretely and also dispose of the used needles, Braxton decided to launch Stealth Bros & Co While there are several Dopp kits brands already on the market, what sets the Stealth Bros & Co's kits apart are the stylish and trendy designs if the kits that calm and comforts its customers from the daunting task of giving themselves injections.

The real-estate mogul recounted her own journey with fertility treatment and how she struggled with storing the injections and safely disposing of them while she was out and about. So, Barbara decided to make an offer but instead of giving Braxton the $200K he came in seeking for investment, the Shark made the offer of investing $100K and extending another $100K as a line of credit for 20% equity in the brand. By then Mark too was moved by Braxton and Barbara's sorry and decided he wanted a piece of the action as well. So he joined hands with Barbara to invest his money into the "good cause" and stuck to Barbara's initial offer. After some consideration, Braxton accepted the offer and left the tank feeling emotional about closing the deal with not one but two Sharks.

Guest Shark Daniel Lubetzky tweeted, "It feels tough to justify investing in Stealth Bros & Co. as the niche solution is hard to scale and you are competing with broader use packs. Impressive that @BarbaraCorcoran connected so much with the mission that she wants to help. Go Barbara! @ABCSharkTank #SharkTank." "Millionaires and billionaires get a bad rap sometimes but people like @BarbaraCorcoran and @mcuban have such big hearts and do amazing things to help others.
