What do you think would be a great care package for someone who has cancer and just started chemo (female). Thanks

If she has an iPad, an iTunes gift card and/or a Netflix subscription. My friend Kelley said that she didn't know how she would have gotten through all the time in the hospital without her iPad. When Zach got sick, we fundraised to buy him an iPad for this very reason--one Silpada party did it.

I also highly recommend one of those reheatable stuffed animals (they also make scarves like this if a stuffed animal isn't her thing) that you can toss in the microwave. Both Kelley and Zach have told me that they felt cold constantly, not just during the treatments, but before and after as well.
