This is Erin, Adam's wife. I’m writing to share some difficult news.
Earlier this year, Adam was diagnosed with a rare and incurable blood cancer. Fortunately, the cancer is treatable and his doctors expect him to live a long life. Unfortunately, his cancer and its treatment have left Adam exhausted and plagued by migraines.
He received his diagnosis and started treatment just before the last two Agile Virtual Summit events. He pushed through the events because he really didn’t want to disappoint anyone in the Agile community. But Adam needs time to rest and undergo treatment so he’s now on medical leave.
As a result, all Agile Virtual Summit events are on hold until further notice.
A few agile community members have already heard the news and asked how they can help. If you’re someone who has been helped by Adam’s work (Agile Virtual Summit, Build Your Own Scrum, his Bad Scrum Master video, etc…) maybe you’d like to help as well.
Adam has two suggestions for how you can make a difference today:
1. Consider becoming a blood stem cell donor
While Adam DOES NOT require stem cells or bone marrow from a donor right now, adding yourself to the registry can provide a lifeline to others in desperate need. Find out more if you're in the US here.
2. Supporting Adam
If you're looking to support Adam more directly, you can purchase a heavily-discounted Agile Virtual Summit All-Access Pass. Not only will purchasing All-Access Passes help support your learning journey, it will also help “keep the lights on” at Weisbart Consulting while Adam is out on medical leave.
For the next 72 hours only, you can get all AVS All-Access Passes on sale at over 80% off.
You can get lifetime access to ALL 9 All-Access Passes for just
$1,877 $375 or individual passes at 70% off.
The 9-All Access Passes contain 100 Video Sessions. For each of the sessions you get access to transcripts, a private podcast, and session notes. You can even earn 113 PDUs & SEUs.
If you want LIFETIME access to OVER 100 HOURS of agile content at over 80% off and wish to assist Adam during this time of need...
(Alternatively, you can buy individual All-Access Passes here at 70% off, which makes individual passes between $30 and $89 each. That said, it’s a better deal to buy the entire bundle even if you already own a couple All-Access Passes.)
Take a look at what's included in the All-Access Passes.
IMPORTANT: This offer is only available until August 3rd at 11:59 PM Pacific.
Thanks for reading this far, and for being an essential part of the community Adam cherishes so deeply.
P.S. If you're part of the current Coaching Agile Teams cohort, don't worry - Dan and Lyssa will continue running the cohort while Adam is on medical leave. Similarly, if you're part of the Agile Mastery Inner Circle, Dan or another agile colleague will be overseeing Lean Coffees and other activities during Adam's absence.
