Justin interviews Glassybaby founder Lee Rhodes. She is a three time cancer survivor who found the peace and calm she was searching for when she was sick and dropped a tea light into a handmade, glass cup. The color and light helped her heal and encouraged her to take that "deep breath we all forget to take."

Lee founded Glassybaby with the mission to help cancer patients like the ones she met in chemo waiting rooms who could not afford day to day needs during treatment. Lee met many patients who could not afford basic costs like bus fare and groceries and wanted to help. As of today, Glassybaby has donated more than $1.3 million from sales to charities meeting those needs.

Lee was named Entrepreneur of 2011 by Entrepreneur magazine. She is the first woman to receive the honor and was chosen from thousands of applicants nationally.
