HERMOSA BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Actor Charlie Sheen and his stunt double Eddie Braun have donated a combined total of $100,000 to the daughter of a Hermosa Beach police officer who is suffering from a rare form of cancer.
Sheen Sunday wrote a $75,000 check to a fund established by the Hermosa Beach Police Association following a conversation the actor had with the girl’s father, Officer Everitt Faulk.
Faulk’s daughter, Jasmine, 10, suffers from a pediatric cancer called Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, according to the Facebook page, Hermosa Beach Police Officers Association supports Jasmine Faulk.
She was diagnosed in September after doctors found a tumor in her facial sinuses, the Facebook page said.
Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma affects muscle tissue and requires chemo and radiation treatment for one year.
On Monday, Braun followed Sheen’s lead, writing a $25,000 check to the police association.
“Big news today for the Faulk family. Together, Eddie Braun and Charlie Sheen donated $100,000.00 to the HBPOA in support of Jasmine’s fight against cancer,” the Facebook post said. “All proceeds go to the Faulk family to support their daughter. On behalf of the HBPOA, the Faulk family and those who support children fighting cancer, we thank you for your generous donation.”
Braun also wrote on the fund’s Facebook page Sunday.
“Jasmine, I don’t know your Daddy, but he is a Hero. He has protected me and my family and watched ovr us even though he doesn’t even know us,” he said. “He protects you and loves you and will do everything he possibly can with the Lords help to get you through this difficult time, and we as a very grateful community will do what small part we can to help your Super-Hero Dad protect and watch over you …..”
