Thirteen Years ago 10News told the story of a man diagnosed with breast cancer, Father Xavier Mankel. 

In honor of the special Cutting Edge: Beating breast & Prostate Cancer, 10News wanted to provide an update on some of the people we've profiled. 

More than 20 yeas since he was first diagnosed with breast cancer, Father Mankel is still healthy and behind the pulpit at Holy Ghost Catholic Church. 

"I am so sold on the annual physical -- that's how it surfaced...it could have been nothing but it was very much something," said Mankel. 

WBIR will air a Cutting Edge Special on Friday night which looks at the latest treatments for breast and prostate cancer. The show starts on Friday Night at 8:00 p.m.
