Michael Strahan's Daughter Isabella Shares Update On Chemotherapy Timeline Amid Cancer Battle

Isabella Strahan Shares Update On Chemotherapy Amid Cancer Battle

Isabella Strahan has hit a milestone in her battle with brain cancer.

The 19-year-old daughter of Michael Strahan—who was diagnosed in October with medulloblastoma, a type of malignant tumor on the base of the brain—is embarking on the second round of chemotherapy.

"No. 2 chemo," Isabella announced in a March 21 YouTube video. "That means four to go."

She added, "That means that, after this is over, then there's just four more months."

Isabella began her first round of chemotherapy in February. At the time, she detailed how side effects of the procedure were a far departure from radiation therapy, which she completed the month prior.

"My head hurts," she said in a Febคำพูดจาก สล็อตวอเลท. 16 YouTube vlog, while holding an ice pack to her scalp. "I feel like I'm having a heart attack. My heart hurts." 

The teen continued, "Every single tooth, just ripped out and not even surgically put back in. My jaw hurts, the bottom of my tongue hurts. It hurts when I gulp water."

Isabella was initially scheduled to start the second round of chemotherapy earlier this month. However, it was postponed due to emergency skull surgery, during which doctors drained out extra fluid from her head and replaced a bone they had originally cut out with a titanium plate. As Isabella shared in a March 6 vlog following the craniotomy, "I'm in so much pain."

"This sucks," she lamented, filming herself in a hospital bed with her head wrapped in bandages. "I was like screaming. This is not fun."

Still, Isabella pressed on with support from her family, including twin sister Sophia Strahan. In fact, her dad Michael recently arranged for her favorite singer Bryson Tiller to make a surprise in-house visit as a pick-me-up.


"I know she's going through it," Michael told Good Morning America in January of his daughter's health journey, "but I know that we're never given more than we can handle and that she is going to crush this."
