Michael Strahan Isabella Strahan

Michael Strahan’s daughter, Isabella, celebrated her official end of chemotherapy eight months after her brain tumor diagnosis.

The 19-year-old went into emergency surgery in October 2023 when doctors discovered medulloblastoma in her cerebellum. In the months that followed, Isabella has been receiving care at the Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center in Durham, North Carolina.

Isabella has been documenting her wellness journey in a YouTube series since the initial diagnosis, and on June 14, she was happy to report that she finished her fourth and final round of chemo.

“This [has been] a long journey, but I made it,” she said in a video. “And now I have to recover and get back to my usual state, which is going to take a long time. But I’m done with treatments.”

To celebrate the milestone, friends, hospital staff, and family—including Michael Strahan—lined the halls of the hospital and tossed confetti as she made her way to ring a bell that signifies the completion of treatment.

Michael Strahan Marks Isabella’s Big Moment On Instagram

Michael took to Instagram to mark Isabella’s big moment saying, “[Isabella Strahan] you are a SUPERWOMAN! Ringing that bell finishing chemo and on your way!”

“You continue to fight with a smile on your face, strength, and determination,” he continued. “I am one proud Dad! Love you, Bella.”

Michael Strahan’s post also showed a clip of Isabella ringing the bell and included a family snapshot at the end that shows Isabella holding a sign that read, “Hooray for Isabella!”

Isabella Strahan was a model and freshman at the University of Southern California when she was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, which is a type of malignant tumor. Medulloblastoma makes up around 20% of childhood brain tumors.
