Michael Strahan’s daughter has shared a huge update on her health, amid her ongoing battle with brain cancer.

In January, Isabella Strahan revealed that she had been diagnosed with medulloblastoma, after doctors found a fast-growing tumor in October, which was larger than a golf-ball.

Shortly after going public with her condition, the 19-year-old began documenting her journey in a YouTube vlog.

She previously broke down in tears after learning of a setback in her chemotherapy schedule, but has now confirmed that she is done with treatment.

Taking to TikTok, she could be seen happily dancing with twin sister Sophia while wearing a gold paper crown.

‘Just finished chemo,’ she wrote across the brief clip, which was set to Let ‘Em Know by Bryson Tiller.

Although the condition can occur at any age, it mostly affects young children – symptoms can include dizziness, headaches, nausea, vomiting and unsteady walking.

Isabella underwent an operation the day before she turned 19, to remove a malignant tumor on her brain, and she recently commemorated her birthday with cupcakes as a ‘belated’ celebration.

She was initially due to finish chemotherapy in May, but was forced to push her final round of treatment back by a month after she underwent her third craniotomy.
