Charlie Sheen

Drops $75,000

To Obliterate Lil Girl's Cancer

1210-charlie-sheen-eddie-braun-tmzHey everyone, wanna hear a really nice Charlie Sheen story? Great ... 'cause the actor just cut a massive $75,000 to help a little girl fight cancer.

TMZ has learned ... Charlie was recently having a conversation with a Hermosa Beach police officer (don't worry he was not being arrested) and learned about a cop whose 10-year-old daughter Jasmine had been diagnosed with Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma.

FYI -- 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.

We're told ... Charlie told the officer, "No parent should have to watch their kid go through that" ... and vowed to help.

The next day Charlie fired off a check for $75,000 to the Hermosa Beach Police Assoc. -- which had started a fund in Jasmine's honor.

And there's more ... Charlie's stunt-double Eddie Braun also chipped in --and cut a check for an additional $25,000 ... which is almost more impressive, since he doesn't even make a fraction of what Charlie makes.

We're told the family is extremely grateful for the donation and is hopeful his actions will inspire others to join the fight against CR.

So before he handed over the check did Charlie roll it up and snort a huge rail of coke with it?

He's no Bill Gates when it comes to Philanthropy but it's a start.

I think a lot of high earning people would actually have more joy in their lives if they actually give away more of their money.

@ex how can you say cops don't do a lot? They literally risk their lives every single day they work because they never know when they pull someone over if it will go smooth or if they will be shot. Cops DO NOT get paid enough for what they deal with. Plus, even with the best insurance they will still have massive medical bills because not everything will be covered. I'm glad TMZ is finally noticing that Charlie Sheen is not the train wreck people think he is. Especially considering his ex wife is constantly in and out of rehab...

Apparently people don't find charitable Charlie as entertaining as on a bender Charlie....... What a wonderful thing he and his friend did. I hope the treatment, will put the cancer into remission. Nothing can be worse than having a sick child.

As a parent, you'd do anything to save the life of your child (you should, I would)....But as a police officer, accepting a large sum of money from a known crack addict (crack is still illegal), seems like that could be quite problematic.

I can't find fault with that. The finances involved in fighting cancer are enormous. It's bad enough you have to face and fight cancer but you also have to pay for it. Good Job Charlie.

Charlie seems to be a really good guy who does a lot of really dumb stuff. This is no where near the first time he has helped others and I am sure there are quite a few others that didn't get reported. Charlie,Have fun,do what you want , just don't hurt your self or others.You are ok in my book.
