Providing that Iommi beats cancer and recovers fully, I think the worst case scenario would then be that the band goes forward without Bill Ward.
As much as I love the original Black Sabbath, due to aging and health issues, I wondered if Ward could even pull this off. He looked awfully old and out of shape (playing skills wise) last time I saw him behind the kit with Sabbath. Drums are one instrument in metal that you need to be in good physical shape with good reflexes and stamina to perform night after night.
I say carry on with Vinny Appice...
