Singer/actress Selena Gomez made a young fan's day on Thursday (29Nov12) by surprising her at a New York City ice-cream parlour as part of the Make-A-Wish programme.

Frehley Gilmore, who was diagnosed with cancer last year (11) and underwent successful surgery to remove a tumour from her brain, has been dreaming of a meeting with the Who Says singer for years.

The 10 year old and her family were flown to the Big Apple on an all-expenses paid vacation to celebrate her recovery, courtesy of the children's charity, and during the trip they stopped by dessert hot spot Serendipity 3, where Justin Bieber's on/off girlfriend was awaiting her arrival.

Their meeting was captured by Tv cameras for U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America and the two girls chatted over ice-cream.

Gomez, who also posed for pictures with Gilmore and her family, said, "It's probably one of my favourite things that I get to do for my job."
