  • Peggy Volz is 31 and works as a “clown doctor” for the Magdalena’s Children’s Trust. I am a clown doctor; I call myself Dr. Banana. I spend my time in children's hospital being extremely silly. I make funny faces, tell jokes, and do magic tricks. I blow bubbles as I walk into the wards. Shake hands with the kids. I carry a “funky” radio and microphone, so I can do Karaoke with children who are well enough to sing. We often meet kids who look really sick one week, but who are racing around yelling. Hi, Dr.Banana when we go back a week later. I am naturally a very cheerful person. I have always been a clown. In school I was always in troubles for being the joker in class. After the school I worked in a daycare center, taught drama, and traveled the world. I became a clown doctor because of a chance meeting with someone works for Aid for Sick Children. I knew it was just the job for me. I still feel like a teenager in my work. I wear a big red coat, a striped shirt, and tights with big colored dots on them. Also I have a red rubber nose and a plastic banana in my hair. Being a clown in a hospital is very tiring, both physically and emotionally. You learn not to show your feeling, otherwise you would be no help at all. The clown Doctor
  • Clown doctors are sensitive, but it’s not a side you often see. To other people we’re happy all the time. I’m still learning to allow myself to feel sad occasionally. There are special kids you get really close to. Right now I’m working with a very sick little girl from Costa Rica. We don’t have a common language, but we communicate through laughter. She’s been in and out of the hospital so many times for operations. She’s always in my thoughts. That’s good because we meet the nurses and doctors. They tell us about kids who they think would benefit from a visit from us. We’ re there to help the nurses too. If a child is frightened – perhaps they’re getting a shot or some nasty medicine – we can distract them so the nurses can do their job. Being a clown doctor makes the worries of everyday life seem small. We’re not paid like millionaires, but we’re rewarded in other ways. For me, this is definitely a millionaire job. At six o’clock I take off all my makeup and change my clothes. I’m totally exhausted. Sometimes I have a girls’ night out with my friends. I love my life. At night I really come alive and party. I’m a 17 -hour -a -day girl. Then bang! I fall into bed and I’m out like a light.
