I have a friend who's been taking the new diabetes medicine extracted from gila monsters (which are from a part of the country known for nuclear testing.) He says he is very disappointed that injecting himself with (potentially) radioactive lizard spit is not having the desired result.

I would call this more "heart-wrenching" than "sweet."

Maybe "poignant".

Yeah, "sweet" doesn't normally mean "makes me sit here at my desk sobbing uncontrollably." You might want to recalibrate, there.
