A More Meaningful Life: Firefighter Regains Fire Within After Debilitating Accident

Beginning March 10, 2011, life as Rob and Jennifer Hudnet knew it would never be the same.

A Baltimore Washington International Airport firefighter, Rob was involved in a disastrous accident at a loading dock. A freight of supplies came down on and crushed his right foot; and, though surgeons worked for hours to mitigate the damage, the gruesome mishap left Rob without his first three toes.

The injury forced Rob out of work—he had been working full time as a firefighter and as an ambulance driver—and landed him on workers' compensation, which restricts him from earning income outside of the money he receives from disability. The snowball kept rolling, as he was unable to achieve any standard of independence during a less-than-smooth recovery and rehabilitation. Rob's wife, Jennifer, would have to quit her part-time job at a doctor's office to take care of him and their daughter, who was 10 months old at the time.

"This is when everything really started to get hard and really get us depressed," Rob recalls. "We lost over half of our income, and we were facing the possibility of losing our house."

Off and Running
It was at a local car show that Rob and Jennifer were first introduced to MonaVie. The couple attended the event as a favor to a family friend, Greg Weller, who set up a tent at the show to promote MonaVie and the MORE Project. There, they met Bob Pirrello and received a MonaVie RVL 3-Day Sample Pack.

Combined with his extensive workout program through ongoing physical therapy, Rob lost more than six pounds during his MonaVie RVL trial run. He then got on the phone with Greg.

"What do I need to do to stay on this product," Rob asked.

Greg drove to Rob and Jennifer's place that night and brought a month's supply of MonaVie RVL. Greg enrolled the Hudnets and even paid for their first order, as he knew they had fallen on hard times.

"Jen and I just sat there in shock because we didn't really know Greg that well at the time,"
Rob says. "We had only met him a few times through my dad. But, because of his generosity we were off and running."

Taking a Chance
The generosity of family and friends has been a common theme throughout this journey for Rob and Jennifer. With the help of charitable loved ones, they were able to make their house payment when they were the most down on their luck. And, when their first AutoShip payment came due, they weren't sure they could make it. It was around that time that Bob and his wife, Stacey, called to ask if there was anything they could do to help the Hudnets.

"I told them that I love the product," Rob says. "I just needed to be able to build the business so I could stay on the product."

The Pirrellos thought about it and came up with a rather creative way to help Rob and Jen remain on AutoShip. On their weekly conference call with their team, Bob and Stacey offered one hundred dollars to the first 10 distributorships who enrolled two new people on AutoShip. Rob and Jen held a tasting party that same week and enrolled Rob's dad. During a one-on-one with their neighbor, they enrolled their second person of the week.

The prize money helped Rob and Jennifer gather enough earnings to remain active on AutoShip. And, the chance that the Pirrellos took on the Hudnets has proven to pay off, as Rob and Jennifer are now Star 500s who hold tasting parties every week with the support of their upline. Their goal is to become Bronze Executives by the end of November.

"We have many goals to hit in this company," Rob says, "and we're so excited to reach them."

Recovery
When Rob started his MonaVie RVL program, he weighed 224 pounds, was out of work, enduring grueling rehabilitation, and falling deeper into a devastating depression. Today, he is 27 pounds lighter and has come a long way since discovering he would have to relearn how to manage his everyday life as he lay in the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

"MonaVie has changed my life and given us something to look forward to as a family," Rob says. "The best part of my program is that it's a strength-building program with the goal of getting me back to work. I'm not at the final weight I want to be at, but I am at a point where I am no longer depressed and can see the light at the end of the tunnel."

New Study Confirms MonaVie (M)mūn Juice Effective in Supporting a Healthy Immune System

It's that time of year, when people all across the country are bracing for the onset of the flu season, and MonaVie has good news for them.

Previous studies have shown that Wellmune WGP®, a key ingredient in MonaVie (M)mūn® juice, provides a natural solution to boost the immune system. In addition to these Wellmune WGP studies, a new, recently completed human study indicates that daily use of MonaVie (M)mūn—a juice blend that contains both the acai berry and Wellmune WGP—can help support a person's upper respiratory tract health and mood.

According to Darin Blackhurst, MonaVie senior director of product development, "Several studies have shown that beta-glucan (known by the brand name Wellmune WGP) is effective in supporting the immune system under stress. Other studies have shown acai berry juice to provide antioxidant benefits by reducing oxidative damage. This most recent study focused on (M)mūn, a juice that is the only product on the market that combines the benefits of both."

Blackhurst noted that the relationship between stress and decreased immune function is well established, with psychological stress having an adverse effect on mood. This study shows that by supporting the immune system, individuals are better equipped to deal with everyday stress, thereby improving mood.

MonaVie Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Cohen commented, "This latest research demonstrates that our (M)mūn product can help support a healthy immune system, even during times of increased physical and emotional stress." Although the study focused on acai and beta-glucan, Cohen said that (M)mūn also contains other fruits specifically chosen to nutritionally support immune health.

This research offers a platform for MonaVie distributors to offer something to friends and loved ones during the holiday season that can be of great benefit: a product that is proven to help support your body's natural defenses.
