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.

You can say a lot about Charlie, but one thing his is not is cheap. Especially when it comes to children. I'm sure it will take a lot of stress off the family, and let them focus on helping her get well.

Please note that his check notes the account as his pocket account.

Its nice to see someone in Hollywood giving to a real cause, instead of A) talking about how others should give (raising taxes, etc.), B) Giving to some BS cause that benefits no one; and/or C) postulating how great they are and how they can save the world. Hollywood YOU SUCK. Charlie you are one BAMF.

That awkward moment when you say something good about Charlie Sheen and can't remember the last time that happened.
Anyway, good on Charlie, that is a very generous thing that he did.

Good job Chuck! Hopefully other celebs are just as generous behind the scenes, cause we sure don't SEE it.

Not sure if this has been said already but, did anyone else notice Eddie Braun's check is dated 12/08/12 and Charlie Sheen's check is dated 12/12/2012?? Looks like Charlie followed Eddie's lead on this one. Nice and extremly generous of them to make these donations... but the article makes it sound like Charlie donated first.
