This really has not much to do with H&N cancer but it's good news and I must share. My husband is a police officer for the city that we live in. We are a beach city in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. There are 4 little beach cities here in the south bay so most of the police officers from all those different beach cities know each other. We have a very dear friend who is an officer for the next city over and we found out about 2 months ago that his little 10 year old daughter has a very rare form of cancer called alveoler rhabdomyosarcoma. She will have to under go 48 chemo treatments and 6 weeks of rads to her eye and sinus area. Her dad had to switch from HMO to PPO insurance so that he could take her to the children's hospital at UCLA so his co pays and out of pocket expenses are crazy!!! All of the PD's around here have started doing fundraisers to help them and honestly as much money as we've raised so for will barely make a dent sadly. Well just this week Charlie Sheen and his Stuntman donated a combined amount of 100,000.00 to the family!!! The stuntman lives in one of the beach cities and saw an officer and asked what it was about and the next day there was a $75,000 check from Sheen and $25,000 from the stunt guy!! Isn't that amazing? I have to admit that I think Charlie Sheen has been a real horses a^* at times but this has made me a fan of his generosity. This is one of the nicest most deserving families I know of and I am so happy for them.
