Devoted South Park fans, namely those who remember "Cherokee Hair Tampons" (2000) and "Sexual Harassment Panda" (1999), know that Kyle is diabetic, most likely a type 1 (like me!), since he's a child and not overweight, and that Stan is asthmatic (like my girlfriend!). But other than these subtle reminders that a couple of our favorite characters aren't exempt from the grim realities surrounding the inherently-flawed human body, I'm far from the only one to state that not one mention is made of either affliction outside these two early episodes.

Keep your friends and family close. They won't be around forever, and they could be gone before you could imagine.

omg, the last line got to me so much.. recently something happened that made me realise it.. but it was too late. Atleast She was feeling optimistic and happy till the end..
And, ofc, the drawing is amazing.

Aw, this is really cute! I myself have asthma and a few other lung problems (and have tubes shoved up my nose more than preferable) but my best friend is a type 1 diabetic! We both love SP, and joke about how we're Cartman and Kenny, but I never realized Stan and Kyle's probs nd this made me think... Is that who we're really like in the series? Lol x)
Anyway, I really love your art! Huge inspiration to me. Keep up the great work!

Thank you! I'm glad I can inspire. That's one reason I do this!  :D

I seem to know far more type 1 diabetics than type 2s, which is ironic given that only about 10% of diabetics are type 1.

Of course! How long have you been drawing this sorta stuff for? You really do have a knack for it X)
That's sort of how I am with asthma. 1 in 12 people have it but I'm the only one I know, which is pretty weird! Especially considering I live in a huge city.
