Amy Schumer's Christmas gift to her dad with bring a tear to your eye

For those of you who don’t know, Amy’s dad was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 12.

His diagnosis led to a financial strain on his small business and her parents were forced to declare bankruptcy.

This then led to her family losing their family farm, relocating to Long Island and soon after, her parents separating.

Don't worry, it gets better.

The actress took to Instagram on Monday to share the news that she had bought her dad back the farm she grew up on as a child.

The post included this adorable home video from 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”.

Schumer then shared this screenshot of her Facetime conversation with her clearly emotional dad as told him the news.

Amy’s dad currently lives in an assisted living facility.
