(Newser) – A 7-year-old girl with just months to live got to meet Miley Cyrus—and friends of the girl's family say the experience was memorable for little Miley Hodge, but not really in a positive way. "It was not a very good experience for them," one tells Radar. Another explains that the family was "put off for nearly a week" before finally meeting Cyrus, and when they did, "Cyrus was more interested in what she was doing in the studio than paying attention to the little girl." Miley Hodge's first Make-a-Wish choice was to meet Justin Bieber, but she switched to Cyrus when he was unavailable.

Now little Miley's supporters are trying to convince Bieber to meet with the girl, who is battling an aggressive form of bone cancer. "I think that if she wants to meet 50 celebrities, she deserves that chance," says her dad. But he won't say anything negative about Cyrus: "My daughter met one of her idols. Period." In a similar, but much nicer, story, 18-year-old Alisa Finley, who is also battling cancer, released a bucket list with the No. 1 goal: "Kiss Channing Tatum." When Tatum heard about it, he sent Alisa a video with a virtual kiss, and even sang to her. Alisa has since marked the No. 1 item "almost done," E! reports. Watch the video here.

Dwayne Johnson had this to say about his opportunity to fulfill a Make-A-Wish: "Today, he's 15yrs old, walked into the room and hugged me like a true hero…my hero. To grant Cristian's Make-A-Wish, was truly my honor. And for me, moments like this are easily the best part of fame."

Cyrus and Bieber both need a good hard SLAP.
