Video: NFLer Demolishes Car For Cancer
Nick Eason raised awareness in an epic way
In addition to showing solidarity with the cause on the field, several of league's biggest stars have taken their support off the field and beyond. Larry Fitzgerald, a star wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, for instance, has pledged to donate $10,000 to breast cancer research for every touchdown he scores.
Fitzgerald's teammate, Nick Eason, also took his support off the field when he went to a mall in Minneapolis and utterly decimated a Kia Spectra with the words "Breast Cancer" spray painted on it.
"I hate breast cancer," Eason said, shortly before pouding the car to a pulp with a sledge hammer.
Eason's mother recently died of breast cancer and he was resolved to fight the disease.
"I'd wear pink even if my mom didn't have breast cancer," Eason told FOXSports.com. "Any time anyone dies from a terminal illness, it's a battle for them, a battle for that person and their caretaker."
