In a heartwarming interview on Good Morning America, renowned cohost Michael Strahan shared a deeply personal journey alongside his daughter, Isabella. The 19-year-old college student bravely revealed the battle she has been fighting with a rare type of brain cancer called medulloblastoma.
Isabella’s health struggles began during her freshman year at the University of Southern California. Severe migraines, dizziness, and fatigue plagued her, leading her to believe she had vertigo. However, a more concerning symptom emerged when she started vomiting blood. Alarmed, Isabella confided in her twin sister, Sophia, who rallied the family together for support.
A series of tests and an MRI later, Isabella received the life-altering news and was admitted to Cedars Sinai Medical Center for immediate treatment. Surgery was scheduled urgently, just a day before her 19th birthday. The road to recovery included relearning how to walk and enduring 30 rounds of radiation. Now, Isabella prepares herself for the next phase: chemotherapy.
