She could stay in bed on the days she wasn’t feeling well, and log onto her classes via computer when she was up to it. “It was a godsend,” said Lori Ritz, Danielle’s mom. “She stayed so much healthier because she was not around all of the kids that were sick (Danielle’s medications affect her immune system). And she could get caught up with her rest and do her school work at her own pace.”
