Pancho Billa is so much more than a guy in a sombrero at the Bills game.  He is the President of the DFW Chapter of the Buffalo Bills Backers.  He is an ultimate Bills fan in Pro Football's Ultimate Fan Association (PFUFA).  He supports campaigns like Fans Against Child Abuse, Fans Against Violence, NFL and MLB Go Gold for Kids Cancer.

More importantly, he is a great friend;  a brother; a father of two beautiful children and a loving boyfriend.  His smile and passion is infectious and he is one of the best people to have around.

As many of you have recently learned, our dear friend and Bills family member Pancho Billa has been diagnosed with cancer.  This week he will undergo an aggressive surgery to remove a mass pressing on his spine to help bring normal function back to his arm.  He is still undergoing several assessments to determine the origin and extent of the cancer.  Treatment going forward will be dictated by the outcome of those assessments.

Cancer sucks.  In addition to being knocked down from the surgery, other treatments and the cancer itself, one must endure the struggles of maintaining what was once your normal day-to-day routine, being tired, achey and sick;  you have to manage the numerous doctors appointments, insurance issues, unexpected expenses and support a family. 

Let's come together and show Pancho how much he means to the Buffalo Bills family.   #PanchoPower #PrayersforPancho

Proceeds from this Go Fund me will go directly to Pancho and his family.

Thank you to each and every one of you who has donated your time and money to help support OUR Pancho Billa and his family during this extremely hard time. I started this campaign/fundraiser for Ezra and his family thinking I had some idea of what he was going through (I am a Breast Cancer Survivor and work in healthcare). To be honest, it's probably naive to think anyone who hasn't received a stage 4 cancer diagnosis can even imagine what it's like to hear those words, myself included.

I have never been more proud to be part of the "Bills Mafia" than seeing all of you, the organization, the city of Buffalo, and the players come together to support one of our own. There are a lot of different ways for dealing with a cancer diagnosis, I wish everyone could have the courage to live life to the fullest each and every day, like Ezra! #PANCHOPOWER

As many of you saw, Pancho Billa got his pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. What you may not know is that he has undergone 10 rounds of radiation and 6 rounds of chemo so far. This includes the round he received the day before supporting the Buffalo Bills at the draft. Thank you to everyone who helped us get the word out for #PanchosPick! He can use all the support as he continues to hold his head high while fighting this terrible cancer!

Just a brief update, Pancho had his port placed today (a minor surgery) in preparation for starting chemo next week.

Please see attached video for our campaign to get #PanchoOnThePodium a wish to put Pancho up on the podium in his home town of Dallas, announcing one of the Bills Draft picks. #PanchosPick

How can you help? Post, tweet, email and snail mail the video, memes, and hashtags to whoever you think can help or will spread the movement further.

Thank you to everyone who has donated, shared, sent love and prayers to Pancho and his family! Everyone of you are appreciated!

Hi all, Thank you EVERYONE who has reached out and supported Ezra in whatever means you have the capacity. I know his entire family is feeling the love from the Buffalo Family and is very grateful.

Ezra has been diagnosed with Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of Biliary-Pancreatic. He is continuing to undergo different assessments, procedures, scans and labs to identify the extent of the spread. If all goes as planned, he will start chemotherapy on January 8th. Please continue to keep Ezra and his family in your thoughts as this will be a long battle.

Ezra's brother will be hosting an event in Dallas on January 13th. See attached flier. Hope everyone in the area can make it!

Last but not least, this update would not be complete without a GO BILLS! This is the first time in 13 years we have a meaningful game week 17. Let's go get a big win for the city of Buffalo and our Pancho Billa!!!
