My plans for posting on this blog more frequently have not gone too well so far. But, I will keep trying till I get to that point. I ended up at my desk this morning to find out that today, February 4, is World Cancer Day, and this repeats each year.
If I had known earlier, I would have written up a post and tried to add some valuable information. Since I didn't, I have done a few things. I added this to my calendar, that I started creating last year. I will keep trying to add key events and dates to this calendar. I will embed it again in this post. Take a look, add yourself and/or send me dates, events, thoughts and suggestions.

It is very nascent and skeletal right now, but expect more changes as time progresses. You can take a look here:

As with some of my other projects, this is work in progress and will become data rich over time. For now, I am reposting, for your perusal, comments and thoughts:
