Long Island family of firefighter who died of cancer reacts to emotional ‘Shark Tank’ episode

Kaley, Christian, and Kiera Young moved the investors of Shark Tank so much that all of them invested in the project together.

The Youngs pitched their father’s invention, the Cupboard Pro, a cutting board with attached waste cup, shortly after his death from World Trade Center-related cancer. Keith Young, an FDNY firefighter and well-known cook and cookbook author, died six years after the death of his wife, Beth.

After the show, the Cupboard Pro has sold out, and there are currently more than $1,000,000 in back orders, reports WABC.
