After a couple of weeks in the hospital, Gijs mistrusted every ‘white jacket’. And even if the doctors left their jacket out, he could smell trouble from a mile distance. With one exception of JoJo and the other clowns from CliniClowns (Figure 1). They never said a word. But just their appearance and a clumpsy play with a small bouncing ball could lighten up the full day. For Gijs and for us, humor was of the essence all along. It is perhaps not the best medication against cancer, but certainly the best medication to live with cancer.
