In brief: Anything they want

Children diagnosed with life threatening illness need and deserve any distraction from the day-to-day treatment and sickness they must endure.
Splurge, but make sure it's age appropriate.

In brief: This may depend on

The age of the child and his or her interests.
For those children who spend a lot of time in the hospital for their treatments, games and activities may be appreciated. For others, it's a stuffed animal or something to give them support while they're getting therapy. The siblings often get ignored so remembering them can be helpful too.
