This is the story of how one clown turns his sorrow into connection. Colin McLaughlin is a hospital clown at the St. Louis Children's Hospital. His introduction to clowning was through a man known as Patch Adams, who you might know from the movie starring Robin Williams called "Patch Adams." Patch founded the Gesundheit Institute which goes on humanitarian clowning trips all over the world. Colin is no stranger to sickness and loss, a reality that helps him connect with those he clowns for.
I fully encourage you to go down the Patch Adams youtube hole. He's a fascinating individual.
