Hospital set to take teen off life support today, family fighting

Happy Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*Time is running out for the family of a California girl fighting to keep her on life support.  A hospital is set to take Jahi McMath off life support today at 5:00 P.M., but her family believes there is still time for a miracle in this 13-year-old's life.

*More than one million people are now enrolled in the federal health care program.  If you still need help signing up, we'll tell you how you can connect with a local navigator.

*Target is saying your information remains "safe and secure" after a security breach involving debit card PIN data.  Experts, though, are warning you to stay on guard.

*Breaking news from overnight: suicide bombings in the Russian city of Volgograd have killed more than 30 people over the past two days.  What does this mean for the safety of people planning to head to the country for the 2014 Winter Olympics?  We'll have that report.

*Millions of people suffer from migraines every year and while there's no known cure, there's a new drug-free treatment on the market.  This morning we'll tell you about a new magnetic device approved by the FDA.

Make it a Sunrise day!
