Pronunciation: ker + way + ter

Sentence: Since Laurie realized that so many people waited for medical attention, it was becoming a bona-fide medical problem in itself. She decided to launch a drive called "wait for the cure" where volunteers would go down to waiting rooms in hospitals, clinics and medical offices to entertain and give moral support to the curewaiters who spend hour upon frustrating hour waiting to be seen by a doctor.

Etymology: Cure + Waiter >> Cure (remedy: a medicine or therapy that cures disease or relieve pain) Waiter (a person who waits or awaits)
