You're going about it the wrong way

1) You may need to review the ADA rules to see if the illness is covered under it. Some site say ambiguous while others say it's covered.
2) They have every right to have this put in writing. You cannot simply walk up and say "Give her accommodations" without filling out forms etc.
So the letter isn't a wrong thing to do. If you write it, I recommend including a copy of the doctor's information.
I've done this too. I received accommodations in college once and had to fill out a ton of paperwork including the paperwork from my doctor.
3) if this doesn't work then you'll probably have to talk to a lawyer. Or consider using FMLA - but remember that too will require paperwork and not just verbally asking for it.
