Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Nick Eason destroys car for cancer

New, comments

In an effort to help raise more awareness about breast cancer, Nick Eason decided to destroy a car as symbolism for beating the ugly disease.

Earlier this week, we showed you the video of Larry Fitzgerald shaving the head of basketball star Kevin Love as a way to help raise awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer. Today, we are going to show you another Cardinals star and his fight against the disease. Cardinals defensive tackle Nick Eason got together with the NOC and decided that in order for him to get awareness out into the public, he should do something fun as well.

So Eason took a giant sledgehammer to an unsuspecting 2003 Kia Spectra. Check out the video below:

As one of the commenters noted on the video on the YouTube page, Eason makes it look rather easy to swing a sledgehammer. The guy has muscles on top of muscles. More importantly, he is very engaged in his battle against cancer, as it recently took his mom a couple of short months ago. Destroying the car was another way for him to get the pain out and show others how he feels about the disease.

Great job, Nick. My only question is: who's gonna clean up the mess?
