In brief: Many possibilities

Sweating for no reason can happen for any number of reasons.
Infection is probably the most common, especially when associated with fever. Other things can too, though, including thyroid problems, cancers (especially if associated with unexplained weight loss), and sugar problems. Sounds like your mom's friends needs to speak to a doctor about this!
