Michael Strahan Shares Daughter Isabella Suffered A Setback With Cancer Battle

Michael Strahan Shares Daughter Isabella Suffered A Setback With Cancer Battle

We are praying for the Strahan family.

Earlier this year, NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan appeared with his daughter, Isabella, on Good Morning America and discussed his daughter’s diagnosis with a malignant brain tumor, known as medulloblastoma. Now, the co-anchor of the morning program revealed that the chemotherapy treatment his daughter has been getting has “been a little rough.”

According to People, Strahan remarked on Isabella’s health after a setback brought the 19-year-old back to the hospital, but he expressed hope that she would be home soon.

“The last three days have been a little rough because she had a fever that kind of comes and goes. I had to take her to the hospital and thought she’d come home a few hours later… It’s been three days, but hopefully, she’ll be home today.”

He admitted that there were some things they both knew would probably take place that wouldn’t predict a smooth movement toward her getting better, but he added that he is doing as well as one can expect for someone in his position, dealing with the diagnosis.

“It is tough to see her go through it, but I know she’s a tough young lady, and she’s going to make it through it,” he said.

As Isabella continues her journey to get through this and become better, she has been vlogging about her journey as she makes her way to fight brain cancer.

On January 11, she and her father opened up about her diagnosis of medulloblastoma. She was diagnosed in October 2023 in her freshman year at the University of Southern California. She told the Good Morning America audience that she was developing a fast-growing four-centimeter tumor in the back of her brain at the time.

On Oct. 27, doctors removed the tumor, and Isabella began a month of rehabilitation, while enduring several rounds of radiation treatment.

Isabella has a twin sister, Sophia, and they are the third and fourth children of Strahan. They are the children Strahan had with his second wife, Jean Muggli.
