* A surprisingly well-done and heartbreaking case in the ''NaruTaru'' manga, [[spoiler: ActionMom Jane Franklin teams up with Shiina to rescue her son Robert, the LCP of the story, who is also a Dragon Bearer, and who's been kidnapped by the Japanese government so they can use him for their purposes. The child even dies in her arms peacefully after they rescue him.]]

* In a rare adult version (and not televised in the hospital), professional wrestler Zach Gowan lost one of his legs as a kid (and met Hulk Hogan in the process), but gained a contract in both the Wrestling/{{WWE}} and {{TNA}} on separate occasions. He does an impressive moonsault, which he used on--of all wrestlers--Big Show to earn his WWE contract storyline-wise. Never really took off in the burying, a combination of Vince [=McMahon=] and the booking crew forcing him into a {{Jobber}} role, and Gowan apparently being a jerkass with a severe entitlement complex behind the scenes. Still... ''one-legged moonsaults''!

* In ''Faans'', one of them stands up to Keith. Keith lights him on fire with an offhand backhand while yawning. This pretty much says all you need to know about Keith. One of the few cases where the limited ContractualImmortality does not apply.

** Dakota Fanning also had a role on ''{{ER}}'' as a kid with leukemia who'd been in a car accident. That's Littlest Cancer Patient UpToEleven right there.

* Subverted in the ''PushingDaisies'' episode "Corpsicle": The littlest cancer patient (well, littlest heart condition patient) is a complete JerkAss who takes out his bitterness about his condition on everyone else. When the Wish-A-Wish Foundation lady comes by, his wish is "for those insurance company jerks who rejected my transplant application to keel over and die."

* OlderThanRadio: Although it's consumption she has, little Eva in ''UncleTomsCabin'' [[{{Glurge}} definitely qualifies]]. When she dies a peaceful and saintly death, all the slaves present convert.

* The half-Clan boy Rydag in Jean Auel's ''[[EarthsChildren The Mammoth Hunters]]'' exemplifies this trope. Oh, and KidsAreCruel, too.

** Though the game is never entirely clear on this. It seems to suggest that she actually does exhibit signs of illness at times, and in the PlayStation3 UpdatedRerelease, she collapses at one point and has to be brought back from a coma by having the Agogo Queen Mother absorb some of her astra, which glows more brightly than anyone else's in the world.

* An InvokedTrope in ''The Assignment'' (1997). A ManipulativeBastard played by Donald Sutherland is trying to recruit the protagonist for a CIA mission to take down terrorist Carlos the Jackal. He tries a number of tactics, but the one that works involves taking him to see one of Carlos' victims, a little girl injured in a terrorist bombing, and introducing the protagonist to her family as a doctor who's going to 'fix' her problem. Later the protagonist realises the whole thing had been faked.

* Yuuya, the cute IllBoy from the seventh and eighth volumes of CLAMP's ''TokyoBabylon'' qualifies, although he has a rare kidney disease rather than cancer. Not only does he rack up massive Moe points with the audience, he's also [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom the indirect cause]] of [[spoiler:Seishirou's eye being destroyed]], as his mother [[spoiler: crossed the DespairEventHorizon, then [[LoveMakesyouCrazy went batshit crazy]] and tried to tear Subaru's kidney out, and instead ended up gouging his Seishirou's eye out right in front of him]]... resulting in even more [[BreaktheCutie angst and woe]].

* In ''Film/WorldWarZ'', when the walls topple in Jerusalem and the zombies swarm in, they are shown to specifically avoid two people - a sickly old man, and the Littelest AIDS Patient, a small, bald boy who stands there in shock. That's right, even zombies are terrified of the evil that is AIDS.
