Michael Strahan’s daughter hospitalized amid cancer battle: 'I feel like I can barely walk'

The 19-year-old has been documenting her cancer battle in a series of YouTube vlogs.

Michael Strahan’s daughter Isabella is giving an update on her cancer treatment after spending several days in the hospital.

On Tuesday, the 19-year-old shared the 11th installment of her ongoing YouTube series, where she vlogs about her health journey since undergoing an emergency surgery in October to remove a tumor in her cerebellum.

The latest video sees the teenager back in the hospital, after her first round of chemotherapy. “I’ve just been getting a lot of fevers," she tells viewers. "If you get a fever of 100.4 you have to come in."

She sticks around for a blood transfusion and an MRI before being allowed to head home, but a subsequent segment sees Isabella back in a hospital bed just hours later.

“I catfished everyone,” she jokes. “We left the hospital after three or four days and now we’re back less than 12 hours later because I have a fever again. I got a fever of 102 and had to come back in. So we’re trying to figure out what’s wrong but no one can find out what’s wrong.”

She continues, “This is the worst fever I think I’ve had. I don’t feel as horrible as I did the first time, I just have a really bad headache so I thought nothing of it and now we’re in the ER.”

While a later clip sees her taking comfort in a meditative coloring book, snacks, and episodes of Criminal Minds, Isabella admits, “I’ve felt worse but I don’t feel good. I feel like I can barely walk now.” When he father's longtime partner Kayla Quick points out that she was walking laps through the hospital just two days prior, she agrees, “It’s really declined.”

At the end of the vlog, her father makes a brief appearance as Isabella prepares for an unexpected surgery to drain fluid from the back of her head. “I’ll be under anesthesia but it’s still very, very… not what I planned to do because I didn’t plan on coming back to the hospital,” Isabella says.

Last month, Strahan opened up about his daughter’s cancer journey during a Good Morning America segment. "It is tough to see her go through it, but I know she's a tough young lady and she's going to make it through," he said.

He also explained how documenting her treatment on YouTube has lifted Isabella’s spirits significantly.

“So many people reached out and said, ‘I'm glad you're doing this thank you for doing this, this has really helped us,'" he said. "And all that support that she's getting from people she doesn't know, on top of people that she does know, has kept her in a very positive space.”
