(WKBW) — Veronica Borjon, Buffalo Bills superfan Pancho Billa's longtime girlfriend, just got her hands on the 'Pancho Power' children's book.

She shot a Facebook live of the moment on Pancho Billa's Facebook account. You can watch the video above.

"With the mask, without the mask, that was just Ezra. That's the person who he was. He didn't need a mask to have superpowers," Borjon told 7 Eyewitness News in an interview in August.

Ezra Castro, who is known as Panch Billa, died fighting stage four cancer in May. One of Castro's last wishes was to make sure kids in need got backpacks and school supplies.

Fans from across the country donated thousands of dollars to The Teacher's Desk-- an organization that supplies teachers and students with school supplies. Out of the 10,000 backpacks, 4,500 of them will go to students on need in Ezra's hometown of El Paso, Texas.

"Pancho Power" is a book for Bills fans. The book captures the personality, essence and strength of Pancho Billa. You can purchase a copy of the children's book here.
