On January 17, 2019, Kent State University College of Nursing sophomore Maddie Boone celebrated five years cancer-free in a special way - at the hospital for her very first day of clinicals. A date that has long troubled Maddie, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2014 and also suffered a broken hip the same day in 2015, will now be filled with hope for the future. “I woke up very nervous that morning, but I was determined to change this date from one that haunted me to one of positivity,” said Maddie.
