Isabella Strahan, the 19-year-old daughter of NFL legend and “Good Morning America” host Michael Strahan, shared she’s battling brain cancer on Thursday.
Isabella Strahan and her father were featured in an interview with “Good Morning America” co-host Robin Roberts, where they discussed Isabella’s battle with medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor. Isabella shared that she began experiencing headaches at the beginning of her freshman year of college in the fall, but initially thought it was just vertigo. However, her symptoms worsened significantly in late October 2023.
She stated, “I most likely woke up around 1 p.m. and I really didn’t want to get out of bed. However, I started throwing up blood and that made me concerned. I reached out to my sister and she informed the rest of our family.”
