Wed Feb 26 Luncheon - Partners in Care Alliance (PICA) by Tom & Trevor Crean

Tom founded the Partners in Care Alliance (PICA) society, with the objective to educate and connect professionals involved with end of life care. The message is simple: if people can have the conversation about their end of life arrangements in advance, before it is an emergency situation, those people will save their family plenty of time, stress and a LOT of money. 

Tom and Trevor Crean are third and fourth generation funeral directors from Vancouver. Tom was past President of Rotary Club of Vancouver and past District PR Chair.
