    Yes, it is possible. Just put the SD card in your computer and use a file recovery program to try and see what, if anything, can be recovered. Here's a free one for you called Recuva to try out. Good luck.

    There are a few programs out there that might be able to recover her data, free or otherwise

    Search for "file recovery"

    Data Rescue 2 has been my hero for recovering formatted or corrupted filesystems on both memory cards and hard drives in any file system format for a couple years now.

    If any data has been written to the card since its' format, the previous "marked erased" data is being corrupted more and more as new data is written to the card.

    The data is definitely recoverable. You just need the right software.

    all above are correct, ASSUMING you did not put any new files once the files were deleted/formatted. If you put more pictures or stuff on the card, more than likely some of the data is gone forever. But my personal favorite is Recuva. Great, fast and free. Has 2 modes, fast scan or deep scan. Fast scan usually recovers what is easily recoverable, the deep mode will usualy pull those files that are dead.... or half dead (like half of pictures and parts of files). Good luck.
