    Despite the counts against

    This "counts" is translated as "adversity or hardship", but I can't find such definition in the dictionary. What does it exactly mean?

    st-185
    ex)In the summer of 1966, Alice Walker, who would later win a Pulitzer Prize for The Color Purple, spent her days battling racism in Mississippi....By the time her parents got her to the hospital a week later(they had no car), she was blind in that eye. Despite the counts against her, Walker has become an award-winning novelist...
