Cooking for a sick neighbor

I'm bringing dinner over to a neighbor this week who has been going through intensive chemo & radiation therapy. I need some help coming up with a menu that will be palatable, yet somewhat special / festive to lend some holiday cheer for New Years.

I was thinking of a silky chicken soup with (small) dumplings, orange & avocado salad, and some soft rolls. Would love to include a dessert but wonder if panna cotta might be too rich / cloying?

Anyone out there with some advice? Many thanks in advance.
