Michael Strahan’s 19-year-old daughter Isabella recently revealed her battle with a rare brain cancer, medulloblastoma, which required emergency surgery to remove a sizable tumor.

Initially mistaking her symptoms for vertigo, she experienced a severe decline in health, leading to the diagnosis.

“I noticed something was off since probably September,” Isabella said. (Trending: Clintons Scramble To Delete Embarrassing Photo, But Were Too Slow)

“Like October 1st, that’s when I definitely noticed headaches, nausea, [I] couldn’t walk straight.”

“You know, [she was] 18 years old at the time, you’re not thinking this,” Michael said. “Maybe it’s vertigo, maybe it’s something else. But she’s young, strong, healthy. Look at her, she looks great.”

“I woke up at probably like 1PM,” she said. “I dreaded waking up but I was throwing up blood.”

“Thank goodness for the doctor… I feel like the doctor saved her life,” Michael said.

“So I went to take [the MRI] somewhere else and then she called me and she said, ‘You need to head to Cedars-Sinai right now, I’m going to meet you there.'”

Following surgery and a grueling month of rehab, she completed proton radiation therapy and is preparing for chemotherapy.

“It’s been two months of keeping it quiet, which is definitely difficult. I don’t want to hide it anymore because it’s hard to always keep it hidden,” Isabella said.

“I hope to be a voice and be a person people who are maybe going through chemotherapy or radiation can look at and find something interesting in their day.”

“Perspective is a big thing. I’m grateful just to walk or see friends or do something, because when you can’t do something, it really impacts you.'”

Her father, Michael, expressed pride in her bravery and emphasized the importance of maintaining a positive attitude.

Isabella has partnered with Duke Children’s Hospital for a YouTube series to raise awareness and offer support to others facing similar challenges.
