Santa Brings Christmas Joy to Infusion Clinic

ANN ARBOR – Patients at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor’s cancer infusion clinic received a very special visit just in time for Christmas.

Santa Claus made his rounds Tuesday morning, greeting staff, patients and family members, handing out candy canes and even sitting with patients and holding their hands while he shared a few words of encouragement.


“This time last year, I was sitting right where you are,” he told patients sitting in infusion bays.

Santa – a.k.a. William Coleman – was diagnosed with colon cancer last year and completed chemotherapy in December 2016. Having enjoyed work as Santa in Christmases past, Coleman wanted to spread some holiday cheer for others facing their own battles with cancer this season.

Thank you, Santa, for brightening our day!
