Good Morning America anchor and former NFL player Michael Strahan revealed on Thursday’s show that his teenage son was lately diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer. ” I am veritably proud of her and she’s always been strong and this is commodity that’s so particular that I did not know if it would be commodity that she would want to partake,” Strahan said. But Isabella Strahan, a 19- time-old pupil at the University of Southern California, decided to tell her own story to GMA’s Robin Roberts. Isabella said in September, she began passing extreme headaches, as well as nausea and an incapability to walk straight. At first, she allowed
she had vertigo. But in late October, she began puking blood. She texted her binary family Sophia, who informed the rest of the family. Michael Strahan also took her to the croaker.
Isabella’s MRI results showed a fast- growing, four centimeter brain excrescence that was larger than a golf ball. She had an exigency surgery to have the excrescence removed the coming day, Roberts said. But Isabella lately chimed the bell, a celebratory tradition for cancer cases who complete their radiation or chemotherapy treatment. Isabella had 30 sessions of radiation and will begin chemotherapy at Duke University in February, she said. Isabella was in recuperation for a month and had to learn to walk again. She claims to be feeling well now. ” I am veritably agitated for this whole process to wrap, but you just have to keep living every day, I suppose, through the whole thing,” she said. She has created a YouTube channel where she’ll post vlogs, or videotape journals, describing her trip. Proceeds from the content will go to Duke’s Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center. ” It’s been like two months of keeping it quiet, which is surely delicate,” Isabell said. She said she wants to be” a voice and be a person people who perhaps are going through chemotherapy or radiation can look at and find commodity intriguing about their day.” Michael Strahan said the experience has changed his perspective about his own life, and has stressed the significance of support. ” Perspective is a big thing,” Isabella said.” I am thankful just to walk or see musketeers or do commodity, beget when you can not do commodity, it really impacts you.” Michael Strahan said” I literally suppose that, in a lot of ways, I am the luckiest man in the world because I got an amazing son, and I know she’s going through it, but I know that we are no way given further than we can handle, and that she’s gonna crush this.” He added” I need her. Without her, I do not know what I would do.”
