OTRC: Charlie Sheen gives $75K to kid who is battling cancer

Charlie Sheen talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com at the premiere of his new FX show, 'Anger Management,' in Los Angeles on June 26, 2012.

Charlie Sheen opened his wallet for a good cause recently, according to reports.

The 47-year-old actor gave $75,000 to a fund for a 10-year-old girl who is battling Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, according to ABC News.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, Rhabdomyosarcoma "is a cancerous (malignant) tumor of the muscles that are attached to the bones." The condition is the most common soft tissue tumor in children.

Sheen's spokesperson confirmed to the news site that the donation is "one of many charitable donations that Charlie frequently makes."

The "Anger Management" star reportedly made the donation after meeting the child's father, who is a police officer, TMZ reports.

Sheen currently stars on "Anger Management," which debuted on June 28. The season contained 10 episodes, the last of which aired on August 23. The show returns in January 2013.

The sitcom is based on the 2003 Adam Sandler film and sees Sheen play an anger management therapist - an ironic role for the actor, who was fired from CBS' "Two and a Half Men" in 2011 amid a personal meltdown.
