Your Ultimate Good-News-Reward/Bad-News Commiseration Dessert(s)

Alright, this question is a doozey!

I make gluten free/dairy free desserts that I sell to clients, well, really only one client.

This client has brain cancer and celiac disease. In two weeks, this person is going to find out how the last round of chemotherapy went. Meaning: the tumour is dying or the chemotherapy did not help.

Now comfort food is definitely in order and she wants to make an order for that day. I'm right now unsure exactly as to what I should make. My aha-moment last night was to make these delightful gluten-free/dairy-free S'more cupcakes that I make. (Almond cupcakes with a truffle baked inside with homemade marshmallow cream and a tiny gf store bought cookie on top. ((I know amazing. It's won contests))

My husband said that this dessert would be the best choice but I'm also thinking about a smorsgabord box of cookies.

Any ideas? What would you want to eat the day you found out you were either thriving or dying?

Also, further to that, I'm conflicted as to whether or not to charge her. I never charge her that much to begin with and it's mostly just to cover my ingredient costs. Should I charge her just for the ingredients in this case, maybe setting a precedent for price? Or, should I charge her a regular amount?
