Sean Boynton - October 2016
Jay Piggot, a community hero and North Shore Rescue team member, is returning to work after fighting cancer for nearly a year. Last November, Piggot was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer affecting his liver, which doctors said was incurable. With the overwhelming support of the search and rescue community, Piggot was able to receive the financial help he needed to complete treatments, hire a healthcare team, and undergo surgery.
Now cancer free, Piggot plans to go through a couple of months of physiotherapy to get himself back in shape, and will then return back to his active duty in January. “It’ll be a big day when I can go to that search and be able to do it,” said Piggot. “It’s going to be awesome.”
