Charlie Sheen's 75k cancer donation

Dec 11 2012, 5:28am CST | by

Charlie Sheen gave $75,000 to help a little girl fight cancer.

The 'Anger Management' actor had been speaking to a policeman in Hermosa Beach in California, when he discovered the officer's 10-year-old daughter, Jasmine, had been diagnosed with Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma (CR).

Father-of-five Charlie told the officer, "No parent should have to watch their kid go through that", and the next day sent a check for $75,000 to the Hermosa Beach Police Association, which had started a fund in Jasmine's honor.

According to website TMZ.com, Charlie's stunt-double Eddie Braun also gave $25,000, and the family is extremely grateful for the donation and hopes their actions will inspire others to join the fight against CR.

CR is a debilitating form of cancer that occurs in the muscle tissue and requires over a year of expensive medical treatments like chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Last month, Charlie gave Lindsay Lohan $100,000 when he heard she was having financial difficulties, but claimed she had never thanked him.

He said: "She got shorted and I found out, so I said, 'Here.'

"I'm still waiting for a text to say, 'Thank you'. Anything you know?"

Aug 19 2014 8:48am CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

Yes, every star in Hollywood may doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but that doesn't mean that Miley Cyrus can't put her own spin on things. The pop star decided to substitute the "Ice Bucket Challenge" for the "Rice Bucket Challenge" after she was dared to take part by her younger sister, Noah Cyrus. (Noah, for her part, went for the actual ice water.) But, why did Miley decide to skip out on the water? When she posted the vid ...
