Michael Strahan’s Daughter Details Brain Cancer Treatment

By Movieguide® Contributor

Michael Strahan’s daughter Isabella is sharing her story as she undergoes chemotherapy following a brain tumor diagnosis. 

“So I’m getting my port placed today, which is a device that goes on your chest for administering chemo, getting my blood drawn, all that fun stuff,” the 19-year-old said in a recent vlog. “I’m not excited.”

Isabella is receiving treatment at North Carolina’s Duke University Hospital Cancer Center. 

Her latest video shows her getting blood drawn and having IVs inserted, but it also depicts some normal moments, like playing cards with her aunt. 

“Busy day,” Isabella said in the video. “I got an IV put in for this kidney thing…never fun. Healing from my port surgery…not fun at all. I now have a wire in my chest. They just put radioactive dye in my body and then I have a blood draw, and then an EKG, then I have another blood draw, then I have an MRI. So it’s a busy day. Not the most fun.”

The teenager recently finished her radiation treatments. 

“I’m very excited to finally be done,” Isabella said in another vlog. “It’s been a long six weeks, and I’m very happy to finally heal my head after all of this because the side effects and everything get to you.”

Isabella and her dad shared her diagnosis earlier this year, with Strahan saying, “In a lot of ways, I’m the luckiest man in the world, because I’ve got an amazing daughter. I know she’s going through it, but I know that we’re never given more than we can handle and that she is going to crush this.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Isabella’s diagnosis:

GOOD MORNING AMERICA’s Michael Strahan and his daughter Isabella have just revealed she has been battling a brain tumor for the last few months. 

“I’m feeling good. Not too bad. And I’m very excited for this whole process to wrap,” Isabella said during a GMA interview. “But you just have to keep living every day, I think, through the whole thing.”

The 19-year-old first learned of her condition — medulloblastoma, a common type of malignant tumor in the brain’s cerebellum — in October 2023. Isabella first knew something was wrong when she noticed “headaches, nausea, couldn’t walk straight.”

A few weeks later, she woke up and started “throwing up blood.” After texting her sister, Isabella went to the hospital, where she got a “full check-up.” That’s when doctors found a “fast-growing 4-centimeter tumor, larger than a golf ball, in the back of her brain.”
