Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Nick Eason dyes beard pink for breast cancer

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

We continue our coverage of Arizona Cardinals contributing to the awareness of breast cancer with Nick Eason dying his beard pink in memory of his mother, Iris H. Wilcox.

Recently, we put up a video from the NOC about Nick Eason smashing a 2003 Kia in support of breast cancer. In case you missed it, go to this link.

While destroying a car for cancer was pretty cool, we didn't get to hear much of Nick's story and why he is so passionate about the fight against breast cancer. That is why the NOC got back together with him and decided to make another video, this time detailing all of the information about Nick and the relationship he had with his mother, Iris H. Wilcox. Wilcox passed away this past August from the horrible disease.

Check out the video below:

Eason's truly hates the disease and the fact that it took his mother from him too early, but it is his demeanor that really stands out. He does not come across as angry or as heartbroken, even though he probably is. Instead, he seems joyful for the time that he did have with his mother here on Earth, knowing he will be reunited with her someday.

Keep up the good work, Nick.
