Michael Strahan's daughter Isabella Strahan is undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a common malignant tumor that arises in the cerebellum, a part of the brain located at the base of the skull.

The college student and her dad opened up about her health news in a segment that aired on Good Morning America Thursday. She learned about her condition in late October, and underwent emergency surgery at Cedars-Sinai to remove the mass on Oct. 27, a day before her 19th birthday.

"I'm feeling good. Not too bad," said Isabella, who will start chemotherapy at Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center in Durham, North Carolina, next month. "That's my next step. I'm ready for it to start and be one day closer to being over. .... I'm very excited for this whole process to wrap. But you just have to keep living every day, I think, through the whole thing."

"I literally think that, in a lot of ways, I'm the luckiest man in the world, because I've got an amazing daughter," Michael, 52, said in the interview with his fellow GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts. "I know she's going through it, but I know that we're never given more than we can handle and that she is going to crush this."
