Jay Piggot needs our help again. Shockingly Jay's cancer has come back and we are trying to raise funds for a treatment that he is eligible for in the U.S.

Jay Piggot, our amazing friend and North Shore Rescue member, was diagnosed in December 2015 with a rare and hard to treat form of cancer in his liver. This cancer is known as Cholangiocarcinoma.

 

The community came together then and helped raise a huge amount for Jay and his family to help fight the cancer. This worked - and Jay beat the odds and returned to work and to the rescue team.

 

Unfortunately the cancer returned very recently and Jay is back in treatment and receiving intensive chemotherapy. His condition is declining and he is unable to work. The treatment he is receiving is helping, but he also will benefit from a treatment called Transarterial Chemoembolization that is available to him through the University of Washington. These funds will go towards helping Jay get this potentially life saving treatment.  

 

Jay is a dedicated volunteer with North Shore Rescue, and serves on its helicopter rescue team as a SAR Medic. He is also a budding primary care paramedic with the British Columbia Ambulance Service. While he is undergoing treatment and recovering, he will not be able to work. 

 

Jay and his wife Denise, have two young boys aged 8 and 11. The older of the two has a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder, and requires significant support both financially and from his family. 

 

Jay Piggot is a man who puts others first, and has saved many lives both in his role as a medic with North Shore Rescue, and as a paramedic with the ambulance service. He embodies the motto of "so that others may live." Jay has risked his own life many times, so that complete strangers might live and be reunited with their families,

 

This time the odds are really against Jay - but the odds have never stopped him from going out on a mission to try and save someone else's life.

 

 

This fund is not directly associated with North Shore Rescue, and there is no tax receipt issued. 

 

All funds are deposited into a trust fund with Blueshore Financial. Three NSR members, including a professional accountant, will manage the discretionary trust.
