The nonprofit Jessica Moorhead Foundation of Hope was founded in memory of 16-year-old Jessica Moorhead of Austintown, who never lost hope during her four-year battle with leukemia. The foundation focuses on the needs of patients in the Pediatric and Adolescent Cancer Program at Tod Children's Hospital.
