that's great that you are making her a quilt, I find quilts very comforting.  A friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer and I found a kit that made a cancer quilt with inspirational sayings about things that cancer couldn't take away, she loved it.  Maybe you could make her a pillow to match the quilt.

I second the matching pillow idea

Cancer is so limited…
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot destroy peace.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot suppress memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot invade the soul.
It cannot steal eternal life.
It cannot conquer the spirit.
It cannot lessen the power of the resurrection.

I like the idea of a matching pillow

you could also do kind of like a care package, throw in some things to do like crossword puzzles, pretzels or other small snack foods.

My moms planning on adding the extra care items to the gift. I have to mail it and she is going to hand deliver the gift to her, hopefully before her first cemo treatment.
