Strahan and his 19-year-old daughter announced the heartbreaking news on Thursday’s episode of "Good Morning America."

“Today my daughter [Isabella Strahan] joined [Robin Roberts] and myself for an interview about the journey she has been going through on [GMA],” the NFL legend wrote via Instagram this week.

“I love you Isabella and I’m always by your side,” he added. “To all sending love, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”

The pair then appeared for the pre-recorded sit-down interview with Roberts where they revealed that Isabella was diagnosed with medulloblastoma – a malignant brain tumor – following an MRI scan in October 2023.

According to Isabella, she does not want to “hide” her recent diagnosis after “two months of keeping it quiet, which has been difficult.”
