LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Isabella Strahan, daughter of former NFL star and television personality Michael Strahan, has encountered a setback in her ongoing battle against a brain tumor.

The 19-year-old shared her disappointment with her followers in a recent YouTube video, revealing that her next round of chemotherapy has been postponed following unexpected complications.

In the heartfelt video, Isabella explained that she had to return to the hospital due to a fever, which prompted the need for an intravenous (IV) line and further scans.

The experience was emotionally challenging for Isabella, who broke down in tears over the IV, highlighting the distress caused by the unexpected medical procedures.

During her hospital stay, Isabella underwent multiple procedures, including the draining of fluid from three spots in her brain.

Despite remaining awake throughout the procedures, Isabella stayed strong, although experiencing significant pain. She underwent another craniotomy, her third in total, just one month after her previous surgery, which heightened both her physical discomfort and emotional strain.

Following her hospitalization, Isabella was discharged after a week but returned due to shortness of breath. Despite initially feeling better after the treatments, she received disappointing news – her next round of chemotherapy, originally scheduled to be her second to last, had been delayed by a month due to a head infection.

Expressing her frustration, Isabella lamented the setback, stating, "I was just bawling my eyes out because it’s just so disappointing when you’re like, 'Yes! I can finish by May!' And then everything changes because of a stupid head infection."

Isabella first disclosed her medulloblastoma diagnosis while appearing on 'Good Morning America' alongside her father, Michael Strahan. The former NFL star shares Isabella and her twin sister, Sophia, with his ex-wife, Jean Muggli.
