I never know what to do about requests like this

This was emailed to my website:

Hello,
My sister is one of your biggest fans and she has terminal
breast cancer and her birthday is coming up and I was wondering if I could get her an autographed copies of one of your books. She would enjoy it so much.Thank you so much.

I get requests like this every couple of months. Sometimes it's easier to say no. Sometimes they just flat out want me to send a book because they like my books. Sometimes when it seems like someone has cut and pasted the request to every author they could find, I wonder. This kind of has the feeling of that, with no mention of my name or my books. I googled the lady who sent it on line, and found a post on another site where she asked for prayers for her brother, because there was a demon in his apartment and it was bothering his baby and his cat.

Hm.

What would you do?
