Carling Coffing has overcome adversity to achieve status as a professional golfer. What adversity? When she was age five, Coffing was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. Throughout her early years she had to administer dozens of shots every day.

In 2008, however, Coffing was able to switch to a diabetic insulin pump, which stays connected to her 24 hours a day.
