Amy Schumer Buys Her Dad's Farm Back After Family Lost Everything, Shares His Reaction
Amy Schumer did an amazing thing for her father Gordon, who suffers from multiple sclerosis.
When Amy was a child, after her father was diagnosed with the debilitating illness, her family went bankrupt.
“Video from the farm when I was running away in the cornfield and my dad was taunting me because I wanted him to come with me. We lost the farm when we lost everything else. But today I got to buy it back for him,” Amy captioned a video on her Instagram.
Amy previously discussed her father’s MS diagnosis, and how it has effected her.
“It affects your relationships for sure. Everybody I meet and I’m like, ‘Yeah, he’s cool, but would, like, would I push him in a wheelchair? You know, would I want him to push me?’ So, yeah, I go there pretty quick. Other people are like, ‘Should we go to Hawaii on vacation?’ I’m like, ‘Do I want you to change my colostomy bag?’ It just changes your perspective,” she told CBS Sunday Morning last year.
