Sherman Oaks resident Charlie Sheen made a little girl's dream come true and did well to reverse his bad-boy reputation.
Sheen gave a check for $75,000 to 10-year-old Jasmine Faulk and her father, Everett Faulk, to help with their medical bills as Jasmine battles a rare form of cancer.
TMZ and Celebuzz reported the generous gift (see TMZ's video report above) and Sheen's best friend, a stuntman named Eddie Braun, handed over another $25,000.
Jasmine was diagnosed recently with a rare form of cancer called Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma.
“It’s a tumor in my left nasal cavity. I was diagnosed on September 17, and then that’s when we knew I had cancer,” Jasmine told Celebuzz. “For him and Eddie to donate the money from their heart, personally, I think it’s a blessing.”
A Hermosa Beach Police Officers Association rallied to help Jasmine and that is how the celebrity found out about the girl's plight.
The girl needs chemotherapy and radiation and celebrated her birthday early (with a Justin Bieber cake).
The girl's dad said, “People sometimes get a bad rap. [But] you can’t judge people,” he said. “Whatever he’s done… I’ve seen a lot of things on the internet, people have thrown out a lot of mean comments. But you know what, these guys didn’t do something because they thought, ‘Oh, this will look good.’ They did it sporadically. They did it because they saw a little girl in need.”
Though the Faulk family has yet to meet Sheen, Everett knows just what he would say to Jasmine’s donor: “I would give them a hug and say, ‘Thank you brother, that’s awesome.’”
