When Schumer was a child, her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and her family went bankrupt, People magazine reports. They lost everything, including their family farm, and they were forced to relocate; but on Monday, Dec. 19, Schumer was able to do something remarkable — she bought back the farm.

And she was excited to share the news, not just with her father, but also her fans. Taking to Instagram, Schumer shared a photo of herself FaceTiming her father. She captioned it with, "Today I bought my father's farm back."

She then followed up with a second post, which shows footage of her as a child walking through cornfields. She captioned the post with, "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.

What Schumer was able to do no doubt means a lot to both her and her family, but it's also touched the hearts of a lot of other people — many of whom took to Twitter to praise Schumer for being an inspiration.
