Carling Coffing Pledges to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Duramed FUTURES Tour Professional To Donate Percentage of 2010 Earnings; Medtronic Will Match

(Cincinnati, Ohio) – Professional golfer Carling Coffing announced today that she will donate 5 percent of her 2010 professional golf earnings to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

In making the announcement, Coffing, who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 5, said, “Diabetes has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I hope that through my successes and exposure on the golf course I can be a role model for children with diabetes and show them that all of their dreams are still achievable. This donation to the JDRF is just my first step in what I hope will be a significant role in educating and motivating those with diabetes.”

A Middletown, Ohio native and a 2008 graduate of The Ohio State University, Coffing is in her third season as a professional on the Duramed Futures Tour. In her first two seasons, Coffing made the cut in over 70% of her events, with her best finish an 11th place at the Alliance Bank Classic in Syracuse, NY. While at OSU, Coffing was twice named to the Big Ten All-Conference Second Team. Prior to college, Coffing was the winner of the 2002 Ohio State High School Girls Golf Championship.

Coffing will be appearing as a contestant on the Golf Channel’s Big Break: Sandals Resorts, which will premiere June 21 at 9 p.m.

Medtronic, a leader in diabetes management solutions, will match her JDRF donation. Coffing added, “I am so pleased to be working with Medtronic and to have them match my donation. I have used a Medtronic insulin pump for a number of years and it has vastly improved the quality of my life.”

Hi

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Last year they helped over 17,542 type 2 diabetics end the need for prescription drugs, insulin injections and blood sugar monitoring.

This year they're on track to help over 30,000.

In just a few weeks, 96% of their patients are able to stop ALL diabetes medication and insulin injections.

No more neuropathy pain, pricking your finger, or the need for expensive medication.

Take care,
