* In one episode of ''{{Anime/Vandread}}'', while tending to one planet where the residents are largely ill due to bad conditions in their atmosphere, Bart strikes an InterGenerationalFriendship with a little girl named Shirley who loves to hear his exaggerated tales of what they've gone through up till this point. She is happy to hear all that, and begins working on a doll bearing his resemblance, which lets people know they existed and left something behind. When a Harvester Fleet shows up to try and kidnap some of the population, Bart goes into PapaWolf mode and does a YouShallNotPass on them. Unfortunately, Shirley dies from her illness while he was protecting the planet, and was never able to sew the doll's hair on... so Bart instead [[ImportantHaircut shaves his head]] [[BaldOfAwesome bald]] to match the doll she made.

* Sierra's ''VideoGame/LighthouseTheDarkBeing'' has Lyril, guardian of the Temple of Ancient Machines. She's been bound to a life support chair since the age of four due to a mysterious accident that required amputation of her legs. Worse, her companions, the temple's priests, had failed to return from a mission some time before your arrival in her world, and her life support has started to fall into disrepair, [[RepetitiveAudioGlitch hindering her speech]]. But Lyril was also trained in memorizing histories, and does provide a fair amount of explanation for what's going on in her world.

* Shows up in ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' with the [[OneShotCharacter character]] Yuuhi, and her illness is dealt with in the series' usual off-the-wall manner: [[spoiler:Lala "cures" her with one of Zombina's stolen teeth, killing her and turning her into a zombie]]. It works out fairly well, all things considered ([[spoiler:she certainly doesn't have to worry about diseases any more]]), but is a bureaucratic nightmare.

Compare MoralityPet and TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth. Often the target of KidsAreCruel. If someone works to earn money (legally or not) to pay for the poor child's treatment, this is a HealthcareMotivation.

* Cruelly twisted in the ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Sick", their RippedFromTheHeadlines take on the second round of child molestation allegations against Music/MichaelJackson. After the detectives begin investigating the Jacko-surrogate (who has bribed a family of a victim, a now-dangerously disturbed boy, to shut up), one of these comes forward saying she was also molested at a charity gathering. It turns out that first, [[spoiler: she was not molested, but forced to say this by her grandmother/guardian so they could get a similar settlement so the girl could live.]] Second is even worse: [[spoiler: she doesn't have cancer; her grandmother is secretly ''poisoning her'' to profit off her ill state]]. What's really sad is that this is TruthInTelevision, and [[spoiler: known as Munchausen by Proxy -- making someone in one's care intentionally sick to garner respect, sympathy, and money; while this is intended as the grandmother's defense, she is told that no one will be "that stupid" as to believe it -- she's just greedy]].
