You may have seen a bunch of people liking and sharing the 'Cuttrell Strong' Facebook page recently. Right away you can figure out that it's a show of support for someone or something. But what is it exactly? I'm glad you asked. The aforementioned Cuttrell is in reference to Deputy Jason Cuttrell from the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office.

Here's the explanation of why Cuttrell Strong was created...

Back on Thursday, July 9, 2020, Deputy Cuttrell suffered a seizure while at work. He was quickly taken to Deaconess Midtown Hospital as the seizure had left him unable to use the left side of his body. Once He arrived at the hospital tests were run that determined Jason had a lesion in his lung as well as three in his brain, the largest in the brain bleeding. The following Saturday his symptoms worsened and He was taken into surgery to remove the largest lesion from his brain. Jason is a loving husband and father and he and his family need our prayers and support. This page will continually update about his condition and ways to help.

The response to Deputy Cuttrell was immediate, and the support has been massive, and continues to grow.

Lieutenant Rob Clark works with Jason in the VCSO, and he is one of the Cuttrell Strong organizers. He joined us on the MY Morning Show to give us an update on Jason's progress, and to share details about a couple fundraising events coming in the next few months - a silent auction and corn hole tournament on September 5th, and a golf scramble on October 17th. Take a listen to our interview to hear those details, and be sure to visit the Cuttrell Strong Facebook page.
