Justin Timberlake

STOPS MEDIA TOUR

For 13-Year-Old Brain Surgery Survivor

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Timberlake has a new biggest fan ... a 13-year-old brain surgery survivor ... who's so impressive that JT stopped his entire media tour yesterday to spend some quality time with her.

JT was being rushed through an NYC building on his way into a live radio interview Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Tina DiLascio -- who told Justin her daughter Giana is a "Make-a-Wish" kid who underwent brain surgery last year to fix a serious blockage in her pituitary gland.

Justin was so impressed -- he stopped in his tracks -- and asked if he could meet Giana, who was waiting outside the building with her brother.  We're told JT waited patiently as Tina grabbed Giana ... brought her inside ... and introduced the two.

Tina tells TMZ ...  Giana and Justin chatted for several minutes. JT asked if she watched the VMAs and she lit up, telling Justin he's "The next Michael Jackson" ... to which JT bowed his head and said, "Thank you."

Giana asked if she could take a pic with Justin, who agreed ... but only under one condition -- "Only if you make it your screen saver!" 

Eventually, JT had to leave ... but not before giving Giana a big hug and telling her to "be well."

And in case you're wondering ... the pic IS her screen saver now.

Very nice. Her hair is quite long for someone who had brain surgery one year ago. She's lucky to have brain surgery and not get her head shaved. Hope she gets better.

JT has always been a great guy. Haters only hate because he is a great guy not because they can get any real dirt on him. Someone should tell Miley and Bieber and all the other little punks if they want to have a serious career THIS is how they should act. JT is all class, the real deal.

JT just gave that girl a memory that will stay with here forever. Nice to see there is a bit of humanity remaining out there.
Also a plug for Make-a-Wish. My daughter is a leukemia survivor and they arranged a trip for us. They are an amazing organization and worthy of your charity dollars.

Even if it was a publicity stunt (which I don't think it is), he still made this little girls day, and it's something she'll remember forever.

That right there proves...WHY are you worrying about Miley "stealing your spotlight"??? The people who count are the ones that matter.

Doesn't she realize it's that cell phone that gave her the brain tumor?
