Charlie Sheen gives $75,000 to help child battle cancer

December 11, 2012|By Christie D'Zurilla

Charlie Sheen's generosity continues: The "Anger Management" star and his stunt double have contributed a total of $100,000 to a fund benefiting the cancer-stricken daughter of a Hermosa Beach police officer. 

"Big news today for the Faulk family. Together, Eddie Braun and Charlie Sheen donated $100,000.00 to the HBPOA in support of Jasmine's fight against cancer," said a post on the fund's Facebook page, which included a photo of Sheen's check. "All proceeds go to the Faulk family to support their daughter. On behalf of the HBPOA, the Faulk family and those who support children fighting cancer, we thank you for your generous donation."

Sheen dropped $75,000 from his "pocket account" while Braun kicked in $25,000. The contribution came a day after the actor was chatting with a Hermosa Beach officer about the girl's situation and proclaimed, "No parent should have to watch their kid go through that," TMZ reported.

Jasmine Faulk, 10, has been undergoing chemotherapy since October, when she had surgery for childhood rhabdomyosarcoma, according to a family blog that's tracking her progress. Her first day of radiation was a week ago.

Jasmine wants to be a nurse, and you can see her in action here, practicing for her future career with her dad.

Recently, Sheen floated $100,000 in Lindsay Lohan's direction to help her with her tax problems. In a Monday "Entertainment Tonight" interview, he noted that La Lohan has yet to float back any thanks.
