Many residents of Meck. county remember Velvet Newman and often ask how she is doing now. She was diagnosed with cancer when she was 2 years old. She is the daughter of Shirley Stebbins Newman Jordan and the late Ralph B. Newman, Jr. Velvet has had a total of 18 operations in her life, for the cancer and the later curvature of the spine that the radiation caused. She completed here education at Bluestone High School and Meredith College and her Master's at UNC in Chapel Hill. She was married to Dwayne Tharpe for Chase City and had a son named Gage. They later divorced and she now lives in Louisburg NC with her new husband, Chris Perdue. Velvet was found to have breast cancer 2 years ago and had a double mastectomy> She is doing fine,,,and such a trouper for all of us to learn from. Velvet is a really true hero in this world. And I send this message as a part of my love for my daughter and all the people that cared for her and gave their support and prayers for her.
