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.

Justin has so much talent - i mean you gotta admit he can sing and dance but to take some time to meet and talk with this girl and probably change her life is amazing. God Bless you JT.

On another note, something tell me JT is hung like a horse cuz how did he land Jessica Biel and have Brittney still in love with him???

When you stop to think about it ..should a child's medical history be made public? TMZ should have said illness or something along those lines. And why these pop stars always have to put this stuff up in the public, when young kids (especially medical issues) are involved it just doesn't seem right?! It is really the child's moment not the stars.

Her hair is pretty long for having brain surgery last year. Story seems a little fishy.

I'm not impressed... How hard is it to take a picture with a fan who actually pay your salary to be who you are today?

I think JT is honestly sincere with all the things he has done good for people. Not for publicity, but for just being a good person.
