The Schumer family lost their farm to bankruptcy after Gordon was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Amy Schumer was 12 at the time.
Schumer posted an Instagram video of herself in the cornfield surrounding the farm with the caption, “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.”
Today, Schumer’s father lives in an assisted living facility. The comedian shared a screenshot from a FaceTime call with her dad, captioning it, “Today I bought my father’s farm back.”
