Isabella concluded her latest video recounting the «frustrating» waves of side effects during her treatment. She filmed the vlog the night before her emotional «Good Morning America» ​​interview with Robin Roberts, also a cancer survivor.

Last week, Isabella recalled the series of events in the fall that led to her cancer diagnosis. In October, she received emergency treatment at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Doctors discovered a «fast-growing four-centimeter tumor» at the back of Isabella’s head and diagnosed her with medulloblastoma.

The Mayo Clinic defines medulloblastoma as a malignant brain tumor that affects the cerebellum, which is involved in muscle coordination, balance and movement. Medulloblastoma can affect people of any age, but it is the most common cancer found in children.

During the interview, Isabella said the next step in her recovery will be chemotherapy, which will begin in February.

«I’m ready to start, one day closer to the end,» she said.
