If you want to give her a present that can touch her, you might want to try Chicken Noodle Soup for the Soul : The Cancer book.
101 Stories of Courage, Support, and Love
A support group you can hold in your hands, these intimate stories by cancer patients and their loved ones, medical professionals, clergy and friends, are a must-read for anyone affected by cancer. Writers share all their experiences -- from the initial diagnosis, to breaking the news to loved ones, to discussing the effect on home, school, and work. Stories also cover securing a medical team, living through an ever-changing self-image, the embarrassment of losing hair, and discovering a new spirituality. A bonus book -- a no-holds-barred memoir by cancer patient Elizabeth Bayer -- is bound into this volume, after the full-length Chicken Soup for the Soul book.
