Los Angeles, Dec 12 (IANS) Actor Charlie Sheen showed his generous side by donating $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

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 $75,000 from the actor very next day.

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