Musicians, TV and [/KWLINK 1315]movie stars, athletes and many other celebs have lent their time to help fulfill the wishes of sick children.

Another music sensation, Madonna, made personal, daily phone calls to a young Canadian girl after granting her wish in January 2003. Madonna also sent the girl books and "healing water."

If it's a one-off, then she's probably your friend- we all have our flaws. But it sounds like she's constantly doing this- your friend's probably a foe. Talk about it with her- ask her why she's doing this/that to you.
