Candystriper

A candystriper is a hospital volunteer. The name is derived from the fact that they traditionally wear red and white striped jumpers. Many girls candystripe during high school and for them it is an important experience that sometimes motivates them to pursue a career as nursing assistants or a similar occupation. Others volunteer at later stages in their life.
