My Gummy Tumor Mascot
My cousin, Muffin, found some discounted gummy candy at the store on the day after Easter. She left the container on my desk so that we could all share them. The gummies were shaped like little chickadees sitting inside of a broken eggshell.
After grabbing a handful of gummy chicks, I looked down to see what flavors I had. That's when I found the poor little red gummy chick in the photo. If you look at it closely, you'll see that it has a little cloudy spot right in its center. To me, it looked like a little gummy tumor.
I held it up to the light and it seems as if the candy piece must have had an air bubble in it that popped at some point, leaving the poor chickadee a bit gnarled where its breast would have been.
I've decided to make the little gummy chick my official cancer mascot. Now I just have to think of a name for it. :)
