Actor Charlie Sheen Pays For Injured Teen’s Therapy Dog

MILWAUKEE (AP) — There’s a 15-year-old Florida girl who didn’t really know much about Charlie Sheen before this week – but does now.

The actor wired $10,000 to Teagan Marti and her family on Thursday for a therapy dog to help in her rehabilitation from injuries sustained when she plummeted 100 feet from a Wisconsin amusement park ride in 2010.

“I think he’s a very kind person for helping me and my family and very generous,” Teagan Marti said by phone Thursday from her home in Parkland, Fla.

Teagan Marti’s mother, Julie Marti, said they are financially in trouble from the medical bills and her recent divorce. Their house is being foreclosed upon and insurance isn’t covering physical therapy anymore, she said. She had no idea how they would pay for the English Golden Retriever puppy.

“I’m in such disbelief,” Julie Marti said. “I was crying. … What a guy. What a guy.”

1. Charlie Sheen is a drug-addicted man with a history of domestic violence.

He also paid over $100K in back taxes owed by Lindsey Lohan. He reached out to serial killer Dorner last week. And now he goes and does this.

6. He has an amazing publicist!!! Other celebirites do this stuff every day and we never hear about it.

Charlie Sheen does it and they make sure it is in the newspaper to try to rehab his image and all of a sudden everybody thinks he's a great guy again. It's pretty amazing how the Hollywood PR machine works.

11. Making amends requires owning up to what you did.

He isn't doing that.

3. That was very nice of him.

If I was very wealthy, I would like to think that I would do things like that too.

5. I've always liked Charlie Sheen

He's got a long record of helping people out. Off the top of my head I remember $75,000 to a kid for cancer treatment, a cool million to help military families. He also gives a lot for natural disaster relief and mental illness causes. I know there's more out there.
