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.

Alongside the upload, the teenager simply added: ‘Did it.’

Fans were delighted by the news, and flooded the comments section with support for Isabella.

Asia Monet yelled: ‘YESSSS SHES A BADDIE. So happy for u love [sic].’

BoomBoom agreed: ‘Congrats to a Warrior. I see you..’

As Priscilla Tobias added: ‘So happy for you! You are so strong and beautiful.’

Isabella first confirmed the news of her illness in January, after suffering with headaches, nausea and issues with walking straight – she first assumed that she had vertigo, but went for a check-up after vomiting blood.

Doctors urged her to head to a hospital immediately, where she was eventually diagnosed with Medulloblastoma.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Medulloblastoma is a cancerous brain tumor that starts as a growth of cells in the lower back part of the brain.

Cells tend to spread through the fluid that surrounds and protects your brain and spinal cord.

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.

In a recent update, the student touched on her excitement at only having a few weeks left.

‘Now I only have one more round to go, which is exciting,’ she told viewers last month. ‘I just want it to be June already.

‘That’s the thing, I just wait around for the next time I get chemo and I’m scared. Once I’m done, how [am I] going to go back to normal life?

‘Because I feel like there’s always going to be another treatment or something I have to do. But that’s a later problem…

‘Otherwise, I’m doing good.’
