    could you help me with this word... I listened in HOUSE a tv serie: candystriber, candystriker; that in its translation is VOLUNTARIO (voluntary) i'm not sure if is CANESTRIBER, CANESTRIKER because he's a disabled and, as he's british as well, sometimes mix the accents.
    I hope you help me, thanks

    I'ts probably candy striper, a term sometimes used to refer to female volunteers (who wear an outfit with pink stripes).

    In the US a candystriper is a hospital volunteer worker (they wear pink candy-stripe uniforms.)
