CHAMPAIGN -- City leaders kicked off the day informing people about the new healthcare law. One of the featured speakers was former UI student Abby Bott.

She was diagnosed with cancer during college and was lucky to have student health insurance. But, after she graduated, she had a recurrence. She wasn't able to get a job or insurance.

To get health coverage by the start of the year, a person must sign up by December 15, 2013. If you don't sign up by March 31, 2014, you won't be able to get insurance until 2015.
