By the time my daughter, Jolee, was diagnosed with underdeveloped bronchial tubes at 4 months old, her father had already left. I was alone raising a baby who needed breathing treatments every four hours, even through the night. She was rushed to the hospital several times each month. She went into respiratory distress at 6 months old, battled pneumonia SEVEN times before her first birthday, and I was forced to keep her inside the house for weeks at a time, as she couldn't be exposed to anyone else's germs. It was a lonely, exhausting, and frustrating time for me.

"Jolee's Baskets" is a project I have created to reach out to other single moms who are raising children with serious health issues on their own. It's a way for me to remind them to take care of themselves while they are so focused on taking care of their children.

I will be putting together Self-Care Gift Baskets for at least ten women in the DFW area. These baskets will include things like gift certificates for spa treatments, massages, and yoga sessions. Items from Bath & Body Works and lots, lots more! They will also include notes of encouragement from other single moms in the community!

YOU can help support this project by donating here! If you want to get involved, please visit Jolee's Baskets on facebook at

We are in need of gift certificates to local establishments, self-care items for the baskets, letters of encouragement from other single moms, hand-crafted items, and volunteers to deliver baskets throughout the DFW area.

If you know a single mom who is raising a child with health issues and would like to bless her with a basket, please contact Donna Vaux through the facebook website!
