I didn't mean for this to sound like, " she doesn't deserve a spot in the Canyon". I just can only imagine how terrified she would be for upwards to 21 days. It's one thing to do a day or two and be legitimately scared the whole time, but 21 days would be awful. I feel if the "de-sensitization process" hasn't already happened then this is almost certainly to high adventure for her.
I bet we all know plenty of people who would not enjoy a private trip through the Grand.
