How would you feel if nobody, not even your partner, celebrated your birthday?

How would you feel if nobody, not even your partner, celebrated your birthday?
The idea for this question comes from something a coworker called me about.
I wasn't in office today, since this week it will be all night shifts, and apparently today's the birthday of that female coworker I had talked about in this question ( Have you ever had an "abhorrent admirer"? ), and she came to work with a box full of pastries. By midday, her box was still full and she looked like she was going to cry. I didn't know about this, but after my colleague told me I sent her a "Good Birthday" via text, and she asked me if I could come over. Since I have to rest before my shift and don't want to have any more issues with my girlfriend ("What, you cut your ex and then go celebrate another's girl birthday?"), I told her I couldn't, but that I can get together some of our common friends (not colleagues, since they just ignore her) and make a friendly party at her home. She seemed a bit more happy after that.
This got me thinking.
I have had the luck of this never happening to me, but it must be heartbreaking.
Has this ever happened to you?

By the way, I'll write a mail to HR management about the way her colleagues and team behaved with her.

I managed to set up a little party for her at a local pub with a couple of common friends. I got her a little gift (a silk scarf) and will drop by five minutes before going to work.
