As fans might remember, in a 2015 dated interview with Barbara Walters, Schumer revealed that her father had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Regarding her father, who has been battling with the disease since 2012, the mother-of-one said at that time:
“Some days he’s really good and he’s with it and we’re joking. And some days I go to visit my dad and it’s so painful. I can’t believe it.”
During the same interview, the actor, who got candid about she experienced a highly tough adolescent period because of her father’s medical condition, also said:
“In terms of my dad being sick, it was just confusing to me, especially the way MS works. He was in physical pain. That’s when I kind of took the lead and took care of everybody in my family. I would keep them. I would keep everybody laughing.”
