Wyoming - Emergency and Assistance Resources and Programs for Persons with Diabetes
Hock's offers 30-50% discounted prices on diabetes supplies. We cannot specifically recommend or endorse any company but we have been listing Hock's in our resource directory for over a year as one of the two cheapest online companies to purchase from. We recently affiliated with Hock's because our own experience with them has been so positive. If you do place an order through our site, they will contribute financially towards our cause and you will get reasonable prices for diabetes supplies.
