Brief Answer:
chronic lymphatic leukemia

Detailed Answer:

There can be many reasons of bad shoulder pain. I wonder if it was associated with right upper abdomen pain or it was underneath the last rib on the right side one has to rule out a gall bladder stone or cholecystitis with cholelithiasis as she is prone for stones and in CLL the chance of stone formation is more.

If she gets another episode of this shoulder pain, you should definitely seek the advice of your doctor who will rule out the other causes as well.
