In case you haven’t heard, Amy Schumer’s got a boyfriend.
And as far as celebrity gossip goes, this is a Big Freaking Deal.
Fighting multiple sclerosis is a cause that’s near and dear to Schumer’s heart. It hits very close to home.
When Schumer was 12 years old, her father was diagnosed with the disease, which affects the central nervous system. She’s used her rise to stardom to help raise awareness and funds for the cause (that includes once giving a hilarious “disappointing” lap dance to a philanthropic donor).
In “Trainwreck,” the autobiographical blockbuster she wrote and starred in last year, the main character’s father battled the disease one of the central themes of the film.
