The ill girl is almost inevitably a [[TheWoobie sympathetically cute girl]].[[note]]though lately, more and more handsome males are taking up the role.[[/note]] The disease can be anything from anemia to organ failure. Smart writers avoid such specifics, making it a SoapOperaDisease. It will never disfigure or impair her cuteness, [[HealthcareMotivation but usually prompts an older brother or sister figure into shady business to help pay the medical bills]]. Or prompts them to rush into some dangerous/brave deed while she cheers them on.

The ill girl is almost inevitably a [[TheWoobie sympathetically cute girl]][[note]]though lately, more and more handsome males are taking up the role[[/note]]. The disease can be anything from anemia to organ failure. Smart writers avoid such specifics, making it a SoapOperaDisease. It will never disfigure or impair her cuteness, [[HealthcareMotivation but usually prompts an older brother or sister figure into shady business to help pay the medical bills]]. Or prompts them to rush into some dangerous/brave deed while she cheers them on.

A [[DiscreditedTrope common cliche]] is that the dying character is trying to hold on until some distant, significant day has arrived. For example, she might be lying sick in [[EmpathicEnvironment autumn, noticing leaves falling off a tree by the window]], and hoping she will live long enough to see the last one fall. You can see this one [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in the Creator/OHenry story "[[http://www.online-literature.com/o_henry/1303/ The Last Leaf]]".

This character type is probably indirectly descended from the Western romantic "[[VictorianNovelDisease consumptive heroine]]" (Creator/NicoleKidman's "Satine" in the film ''Film/MoulinRouge'' is a contemporary example). If the afflicted character has any [[CommonMarySueTraits Mary Sue tendencies]], she may suffer from what Creator/RogerEbert called [[Literature/EbertsGlossaryOfMovieTerms Ali McGraw's Disease]] (after ''Film/LoveStory''): "Movie illness in which only symptom is that the sufferer [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished grows more beautiful as death approaches]]."
