Jasmine Faulk Gets Toys R Us Shopping Spree

The Hermosa Beach Police Officers Association treats the 10-year-old and her brother to some holiday cheer. Jasmine is battling a rare form of pediatric cancer.

The Hermosa Beach Police Officers Association took Jasmine Faulk and her brother Jacob on a holiday shopping spree at the Toys R Us in Torrance Saturday. 

The day was meant to cheer up Jacob and 10-year-old Jasmine, who is undergoing aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatment in a battle against a rare and aggressive form of pediatric cancer.

HBPOA paid for the shopping spree and did not use funds that have been donated for Jasmine's medical treatment, said HBPD Sergeant Robert Higgins.

Just last week, Charlie Sheen and Manhattan Beach resident Eddie Braun, a stunt man, donated $100,000 to Jasmine's medical fund.

Uniformed officers showed up to support Jasmine and Jacob during their shopping spree; Jasmine's dad Everitt is an HBPD motor officer.

Higgins said there has been an incredible outpouring of support from area police departments and citizens.

On Saturday at Toys R Us, the Faulk family was presented with $100,000 in checks from Sheen and Braun.
