Posted on Dec 12, 10:55AM | IANS

Actor Charlie Sheen showed his generous side by donating USD 75,000 for a 10-year-old girl suffering from cancer.

Sheen, 47, was in conversation with a Hermosa Beach police officer here, when he got to know that the officer's daughter Jasmine is suffering from Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma (CR), reports tmz.com.

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

The actor, who is father of five children said to the officer: "No parent should have to watch their kid go through that."

Hermosa Beach Police Association, which started a fund for Jasmine received a cheque of USD 75,000 from the actor very next day.

Sheen's stunt-double Eddie Braun also contributed USD 25,000.
