I can personally tell you about:

5 F U
Taxol
Cistplatin
Carboplatin
Red Devil (think the name brand is Adria)
Megace
Tamoxfin

She needs an IV Infusion Port. THis will allow her to recieve the chemo drugs, scan drugs (including nuclear drugs) and blood transfusions. Basically it is a catherer inserted in your chest wall that links to the heart itself. THe drugs hit the arteries and run thru your body instead of an IV line in your arm. Saves you lots of pain, lots of bad sticks, and allows you to only have one stick each visit that will not leave bruising....
