Schumer, aged 42, disclosed her diagnosis in Friday’s edition of Jessica Yellin’s “News Not Noise” newsletter, shortly after fans noticed changes in her appearance during the promo tour for season 2 of Life & Beth. She shared that she became aware of her condition while promoting her show and feels “reborn” after receiving a diagnosis.
