If it exists. Does anybody know where I can find the online text of an Akathist or Canon to St. Mother Mary of Egypt?

I am sure there is an Akathist out there for her some place, try Romania they seem to love them. Her canon is part of the Great Canon that is sung the first and fifth week of lent.

According to a post over on the ByzCath forums (which can be found by putting "Book of Akathists" table of contents into Google. It's the first non-sponsored link), an Akathist to St. Mary of Egypt is in the Book of Akathists, Vol. II.
"Hades is not a place, no, but a state of the soul. It begins here on earth. Just so, paradise begins in the soul of a man here in the earthly life. Here we already have contact with the divine..." -St. John, Wonderworker of Shanghai and San Francisco, Homily On the Sunday of Orthodoxy

Case closed! 
Thanks for the suggestions...I used Google Search Romanian and Google Search Russian to find several sites with the Akathist. Then I translated them to English using Google Translate.
