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. Unfortunately, today on December 5, 2017 the cancer took Jay’s life.
Jay was a dedicated volunteer with North Shore Rescue, and served on its helicopter rescue team as a SAR Medic. He was also a budding primary care paramedic with the British Columbia Ambulance Service.
Jay Piggot is a man who put 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,
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. In lieu of paying for Jay’s treatment we want to create a trust fund to take care of Jay’s Children and give them the opportunities he wanted for them.
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.
