Orchard Park, N.Y. (WHAM) - The Buffalo Bills are good people.

As part of the holidays, the Buffalo Bills media relations team sent out cookies to reporters who cover the team.

13WHAM's Jenna Cottrell received a special note on her gift.

The note reads, "Happy Holidays from the Bills Media Relations Department. We hop you and your family enjoy the holiday season. Thank you for your coverage throughout the year. As a token of our appreciation, we have made a donation to the Wilmot Cancer Institute in Rochester in honor of Jenna Cottrell.

- Derek, Chris, Kevin, Chris, Nicole, Dave, and Nate"

In January, Jenna was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin's lymphoma, went through 12 rounds of chemotherapy and was cancer free in August.

Jenna's victory over cancer was highlighted in October when Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans slammed into her on the sidelines of a Bills game on October 22, knocking her over.

"That's the best way to do it," Jenna said in an interview the day after the hit. "Just brush it off and literally get back up. You can accomplish whatever you want to do. I feel like that was kind of a figurative sense of what I've been through, but, hey, you have a good time and you roll with it. Life's gonna give you punches, but you've gotta get back up."
