Ezra Castro, better known as Pancho Billa, is one of the Bills' biggest fans. The Texan who can often been seen in the front row fighting for his Bills, is also fighting cancer. He just underwent a round of chemotherapy last week.

“This medicine has got me pretty down. I've been sleeping a lot,” said Castro.

Castro has had one heck of a month. Before the Bills game against the New York Jets, Castro gave the Bills players a pep talk.

“I was a little bit nervous, I'll admit it. I mean what do you tell a professional football team, you know?” asked Castro.

He talked about his fight with cancer and how the Bills and their fans are a family. Wide receiver Zay Jones took the speech to heart. During the game he wore this towel. It read ‘Poncho.’

“Props to him. He felt the sincerity of my message to them,” said Castro.

With that towel on, Zay Jones scored a touchdown.

“I never even thought about it until after the game when the media started tweeting about what was the message on Zay's towel,” added Castro.

After the game, Jones threw the towel into the stands.

Castro is asking for some help from Bills fans. 

“If someone is watching or listening and they know who has that towel, we could work something out to get it in my possession because it means a lot to me,” asked Castro.
