B.C. Cancer Agency receptionist Anna Wright has been decorating the lobby of the Lee Street agency for about 13 years with animatronic Santas, snowmen and everything Christmas. It takes about three days of her own time to set up the entire display. She does it to cheer up patients who pass through for treatment and says she was gratified to hear from one woman who said it made her wish she was once again a little girl.
