Charlie Sheen has offiically turned the corner, at least as far as his public image is concerned. First he hit Lindsay Lohan off with a huge check for $100,000 to help cover her tax bill and now he has cut anotther check for $75 Stacks to a 10 year old girl. Before you start in on how things like that never happen to you, and how lucky this girl is, you should know that she has Cancer.
While in Hermosa Beach, California, Sheen had a conversationn with a police officer who mentioned his daughter Jasmine. She has Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma. That is the fancy word for a type of Cancer that effects children, and attacks the tissue in their face. CR treatment requires a year of super expensive radiation therapy and chemotherapy treatment.
After hearing the story, Sheen felt that , “No Parent should have to watch their kid go through that”. The next day Sheen cut a check for $75,000 to the police Association who had started a fund for Jasmine. Sheen’s stunt double, inspired by Sheen’s genorositty, matched Sheens’ $75 K with another $25,000 of his own making it an even $100,000 for Jasmine.
Sheen’s rep let ABCnews and the rest of the world know that the $75K is just, “one of many charitable donations that Charlie frequently makes.”
Unlike Lindsay Lohan, who has yet to thank Sheen for his gift, the Officer could not have been more thanful. In regards to Lindsay, Charlie says,
”I’m still waiting for a text to say ‘thank you’. Anything, you know?”
Sorry Charlie, Lindsay probably drunk that money, put it up her nose or in her vein. The last thing she did was pay taxes. Yes, I’m hating.Read more...
Robin Roberts is my girl! After the death of her mom, she fell somewhat quiet but not too quiet. This Thursday is the big morning. She gets her bone marrow transplant. Just in case you were on another planet over the last few months, Robin Roberts was diagnosed with myelodypastic syndrome which is a rare blood disorder that affects the bone marrow. This is why the bone marrow transplant is necessary. In preparation for the surgery she has undergone chemotherapy.
On her blog, Roberts posted,
“So today is my last day of chemo, Wednesday is called a day of rest, yay, right! The transplant is scheduled for Thursday morning.”
Roberts sister Sally-Ann will be the donor as the two were are a perfect match.
Roberts still has a lot of fight in her although the Chemotherapy treatment hit her body hard. She admitted,
“The start of last week went well but the daily chemo/treatment caught up to me by the weekend. My body is so weak but not my mind.”
Roberts had a party to last Sunday at her apartment to lift her spirits, the picture above was taken from that joyous occasion.
With just one day away, get your prayers and best wishes lined up because Robin will need and appreciate them all. You can follow her progress via her blog: Robin Roberts Blog (10)
