Need ideas for comforting / useful items to give a person undergoing intense chemotherapy (x2).

Two of my co-worker's wives have cancer and are being treated with chemo. Several of us would like to show our support and send them each a gift to let them know we're thinking of them. Unfortunately (or, more correctly, fortunately) none of us has had the experience of being closely tied to a chemo patient so we're not sure what would be most appreciated, under the circumstances.
Assume that the recipients are both female (of course...), middle aged, having chemo treatments several times a week. We don't personally know, and have never met, the wives in question but we are fond of the husbands and we'd like to make them happy by cheering the wives up.
Let's say the overal budget per wife is $40-50.
