24 hours from now my brother and the friend of all CCB'ers Chris Cass goes under the knife, holding a 10-2 advantage on Cancer when he finally has his "removal". I urge all that ever read his posts and learned, laughed and cried to put forth a maximum effort of prayer and well wish's. If I could, I'd take the knife for him...
Voodoo~~~truely loves the Cass family and will be there for them through this and all else!!
02-09-2003, 09:11 AM

We will be thinking of Chis, Heide and Christ a lot tomorrow.

It's the 12th round and CC has cancer up against the ropes, the cancer can sense it's defeat coming, he's been whooping it's a$$ the whole time, CC is so close to victory he can taste it, even smell it in the air. He's one final push from knocking it out forever.
Good luck Chris-a champion in everyone's hearts.
02-09-2003, 01:21 PM
Chris, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. good luck
02-09-2003, 02:11 PM

You, Heide, and Christ will be in my thoughts and prayers... I know in my heart you're going to beat this thing. Get well soon, buddy.
I'm with you Chris. Much love to the Cass family.

Yeah Chris try to hang on. Cancer can be quite the opponent. I know this cuz I have lost 2 of my uncles, grampa and one aunt to cancer. So Chris u just pocket the 9 and finish him off..I know u can. Best wishes from Easter-Europe.
02-09-2003, 05:46 PM
Get your spikes on, Chris, and snug up the joint. You've got a lot of pool ahead of you. Dig in and take care of this little chore on Monday and then getcha some.
The less you bet, the more you lose when you win.

I met the national cancer survivor of the year last week. What an impressive lady! She has been fighting this disease fore 23 yrs. I asked her how she has dealt with this sickness so successfully and with such grace. This is what she told me. "I looked at this scary word (cancer) and almost lost it and all of a sudden the first 3 letters stood out like 3-D. The word CAN and faith in GOD, and alot of support from friends and family have gotten me through it." She also told me that when she say a doctor who gave her no hope, she found a new one.
My prayers are also with you and the family Cris.
02-09-2003, 06:40 PM
You will be in my prayers for a quick recovery...
02-09-2003, 06:58 PM
You got the breaks and ball in hand afterwards. We're all pulling for you and your family......
02-09-2003, 07:12 PM
I correspond with CC via the internet when he feels up to it. He already knows that I am praying and pulling for him on his way to victory over this dreaded opponent. I just wanted to put my backing in writing and say to kick that mother in the ass Chris. I am behind you all the way. If you should need anything just send me a pm and I will do what I can to help out the Cass family.
One day at at time. Stay strong each day and win the battle. Chris, Heide and Christ you know you'll be in my thoughts and prayers tommorrow.
Thoughts and prayers are with Chris and family... hope all is going well!

As I sit here in front of my computer, reading everyone's thoughts and wishes, watching the clock tick closer and closer to 5 a.m., I feel overwhelmed with feelings of love, support, and friendship. It amazes me the special bond that I have made with those of you whom I have met and have yet to meet. It makes knowing you, and the anticipation of meeting you so meaningful. There are no words to describe how I feel about all of you. I have very few close friends here in the QC. I get more calls from Florida than I do local, LOL. I have had plenty of support from them, especially my boss, who has let me take off work whenever needed without question. But everyone here on the board has helped me more than anything. You are my "support" group. I don't know what I would have done without you.
I know that Chris feels the same way, but he expresses himself much better than I do. I do the spelling and the grammar in the family, and he does the writing, LOL. I hope all of you understand how I feel about you, and thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Heide ~ Geez, I almost forgot. For the week that Chris is in the hospital, I will be de-smoking the house. From the paneling on the back room walls, to the curtains on the windows, to the ceilings in every room. When he comes home, this is one family that will be completely smoke-free, inside and out!!
02-09-2003, 08:46 PM
I did not know about Chris`s suffering till I read these posts.I am sorry to hear about this.Chriss,Fight back.U can conquer the cancer.We are all with u in this fight.Cheers
02-09-2003, 11:42 PM
Chris and Heide, I've got a little surprise package to mail you. Just have to find that envelope Chris sent to get the return address.
Chris, I'm with you buddy! Funny, how I've never met you, not prone to feel this way easily, but I still think of you as a "buddy!" That says something about your humanity that comes through in your posts. I'm also not religious at all, but for some strange reason, I will be praying for you. Give 'em hell, Chris.
And I'm thinking of you as well, Heidi. I know how tough it must be for you. Hang in there girl. Chris is incredibly lucky to have someone like you at his side.

My thoughts and prayers are with them!

Chris and his family will be in my thoughts and my prayers.
"I will bring back your health and heal your injuries," says the Lord..."
02-10-2003, 08:03 AM
My thoughts and prayers will be with Chris and family.
02-10-2003, 08:05 AM
Chris, My thoughts and prayers are with you!
02-10-2003, 08:08 AM
Hope all goes well with the surgery and soon you will be on the road to recovery. The "road" warrior in you will give you the right mental attitude to face the coming months. You will be a great addition to our cancer survivors club. Jake
02-10-2003, 08:23 AM
I'll see you three in May.

I am sure you have a large task at hand trying to remove the smoke but I am happy you have made such a decision.
Please tell Chris that we are all praying for him and your family. What a wonderful site it will be when the family heads back to the pool hall together and completely healed. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I've been praying for the Cass Family along with another family who is suffering from ovarian cancer. I am anxious to hear an update on Chris' condition. Please let us know ASAP that all is well.
02-10-2003, 01:41 PM
Our prayers are with you. You're one heck of a cool guy.
You have a great family and friends behind you.
Get well soon!!!!

The procedure went a little longer than they anticipated, but it did go well. He's in the ICU for a couple of days then off to a regular room. He looked pretty good for going through what he did. They've got him on a continuous IV for pain so he'll be pretty groggy most of the time.
I can't thank you all enough for all of your concern and support. It's really nice to have friends like you.
Heide & family
02-10-2003, 03:51 PM
That's good news, Heide. Thanks for the timely update. I'm sure you know we're all here on pins and needles waiting to hear that he's come out the other side as O.K. as can be expected. Now it's just time to heal.
