Sam’s Club was there throughout my battle with breast cancer
I opened my business, Buffy’s Cupcakes on Main, on Oct. 1, 2011, and quickly became a Sams Club business member within the same month. In July 2012, I became well-known in the Sherman-Denison, Texas area because my business was featured on Food Networks Cupcake Wars.
In January of 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer. Right after it was announced and more people found out, a Sams Club employee made ribbons for the members and employees to wear. The manager also contacted me about their Click n Pull program because I was too weak to shop. I didn’t know this program existed until they reached out to me personally. The program allows you to shop online, pick up your order the next day and the associates will load it for you. A few weeks later, my daughter went into Sams Club for an optical appointment and noticed all the associates wearing pink ribbons as well as pink cupcake details around the store. She asked an associate what it was for and discovered that it was for me. She said, That’s my mom, and an associate replied, Can I give you a hug? It was comforting for my daughter to know that so many people cared about our family and my battle with cancer.
I am a single mother of three and fairly new to this area, with no family living close. I now only use Sams Club to help run my business and it has cut out a huge expense. Sams Club isn’t like a big business. They have this small-town family feel. Throughout my battle, they’ve sent me get-well notes, helped with a 5K race and just been a great support system. I can’t say enough great things.
