While breastfeeding the newly born twins, Tran realized a lump of mass growing inside her breast. Upon further routine checkups, her worst fears turned into a reality. She was suffering from stage three breast cancer.
The news eventually spread like wildfire among family and friends. Tran was devastated by the fact of what might happen to her husband and children once she is gone. But Ken made sure Tran would keep on fighting and not give up until the cancer was completely beaten. Tran soon began her 16 sessions of chemotherapy, 1 mastectomy and radiation therapy for 3 years straight. It was around this time, Ken was also cast for the role of Leslie Chow in the Hangover franchise.
With subtle Asian comedy, Leslie Chow not only became an iconic character but also the centerpiece for upcoming Hangover franchise. Tran was not only pleased but mostly relieved by her husband’s performance. She overall made her full recovery by the beginning of 2010 and in October of 2010, Tran was announced cancer free by the doctors. The couple celebrated their victory over cancer with Ken’s MTV Movie Awards (2010) for the category of “Best WTF Moment Award”.
The doctors also gave Tran a warning on the possible return of her cancer within a couple of years. Luckily that hasn’t happened to date and on the 18th of February 2017, Tran celebrated her 8th anniversary for beating cancer. It was indeed pointed out by her loving husband Ken in his Twitter account. After the incident, the couple has mostly focused their charity work on Cancer patients throughout America.

Social media presence
In these desperate times, social media has become a vital reserve of information and knowledge. From a high school kid to mere celebrity everybody is now bound to this circle of information exchange. For celebrities, it has its own perks and cons. We’ve seen individuals gaining widespread popularity all thanks to their performance in these so-called media platforms. These days posting a ten-minute long video on YouTube can earn you millions of loyal fans and followers.
That’s the power of social media but it also creates controversy and hates speech from time to time. Now for Tran Jeong she is a moderate social media user who is present in Instagram and Twitter. She has little followers in her Instagram account and her Twitter account all along. Tran rarely posts about her private and personal life that makes it easier for her to escape unnecessary rumors and controversies that follows with it.
Most of the celebrities out in the world are philanthropist these days. Is it a coincidence or a new trend growing among young and talented celebrities. The answer is Yes and No also. You see most celebrities engage in donations and charity work out of goodwill and pure intentions. But some seek their own fame and popularity in these works.
Entertainers and celebrities like Ellen De’ geners and Oprah Winfrey have established themselves to be some of the greatest philanthropists of Hollywood. If we look into their works most of them have their own charity foundations or donation groups which provides help to millions of helpless people. The same goes for Tran Jeong and her charity works in California. It’s not clear which foundation or charity group Tran is engaged with. But news of her donations and help for Cancer patients is buzzing all over the internet lately. It wouldn’t be possible however if not for Ken Jeong’s constant support and love.
