Frau in my office is making a friend's child's death all about her.

Her friend's child died on SIDS in late August. Terrible tragedy, obviously. However, she seems to have made this entire tragedy all about her. She set up a facebook page accepting donations for some SIDS organization. The profile photo on this page is her holding the baby, and to be honest, it looks photoshoppped. She has this same photo as her computer wallpaper, and the photoshopping is more apparent when blown up. She has placed SIDS literature in our kitchen with a note to see her to learn more about this syndrome, as if she is some expert. We work in the Newport area of Jersey City, and she sent a company-wide email yesterday announcing that she is organizing a charity cruise around the Hudson, with proceeds to go to this SIDS organization. When she talks about all of this, it's always from her POV, how it's affected her, how she is constantly there for the grieving parents 24/7 as a shoulder to cry on, how it was her idea to include the baby's mobile in the casket, how she has taken it upon her to educate herself and others about the syndrome, how she is coordinating all this charity stuff, etc. All of it relates back to her. Yes, it's a terrible tragedy, and I guess what she's doing is ultimately a good thing, but it just reeks of narcissism and grief porn. She's she star of this awful tragedy. Do you know any people like this?
