Aslamalkium imam, hope you and your family are in the best of health. Ameen.
My sister is very ill constantly, she cant fast due to her illness. I was wondering what are the best supplications (duaa’s) to say on this blessing month of Ramadan? What are some things to do to, such as praying certain prayers etc.
I understand you got many things going on but Please get back to me as soon as you can in regards to my sisters illness. So I can take advantage of this blessing month.

Wishing you and your family likewise.
Every person is undergoing a challenge. Some need the help of doctors, other sicknesses may need the help of a teacher, friends, etc. One must seek the help from the correct places at all times.
At the time of suffering, one can read as often as possible regardless of time, laila ha illa anta subhanaka inni kuntu minazaleen (the dua of Yunus AS). Likewise, any another dua too would suffice for a suffering person. A person suffering and remembering Allah in sickness and difficulty when the possibility to turn away from Allah exists in every human is a bounty and a blessing.
If she prays like the prayer of the prophets, wherein they used to say the following paraphrased words, Oh all, you gave me so much, so make it easy for me to endure this little pain, or if she states, Oh Allah, even in sickness you are kind to me for their others that are in more difficulty than me, she would see ease in her matters insha-allah. Such prayers show love of the Creator as well as hope in the Mercy of Allah.
Her reward would be great, every moment of sacrifice and endurance is expanding her position of spirituality ad paradise. She is special. Ask her to pray for all. Allah never places a burden more than a person can endure.
In all sincerity, we wish her the best. Her not giving up hope would gain her the greatest favors from Allah. Hold on strong with her, for in Islam, strength at the time of difficulty is better than weakness, and this strength only comes to a person that accepts everything that come their way. May Allah bless you all in every way, Ameen.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
