[Gossip] Charlie Sheen Donates $10,000 to Ailing Girl for Therapy Dog
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.16.2013



RadarOnline reports that in an act of goodwill actor Charlie Sheen donated $10,000 to the family of Teagan Marti in Parkland, Florida in order to assist Teagan in getting a therapy dog.

Marti suffered an accident in 2010 when she fell 100 feet on a ride at a Wisconsin amusement park. She now has brain, spine, pelvis, and internal injuries. The accident took place at Extreme World in Wisconsin Dells. She was paralyzed for months and had no use of her arms or legs, but she can now walk with the help of a walker. Teagan's family has been struggling financially since the accident, and their house is in foreclosure and insurance for Teagan's therapy has ran out.

Regarding the gesture on his donation, Sheen stated: "I like to pay it forward. People come into your orbit for a reason. You don't always know what that is ahead of time, but if I ignore these requests then I don't have any opportunity to see where these things lead us, or lead me."

Teagan said on Sheen, "I think he's a very kind person for helping me and my family and very generous."

Sheen learned about the Marti family through his godfather, who is a family friend of Eau Claire resident Lucia Wilgus, who previously held a fundraiser for the family. After telling Sheen that a therapy dog for Teagan would be around $6,000, Sheen donated $10,000 to the family and left the door open for more if need be.

Sheen also suggested, "I think they should name the dog Charlie!"
