Proceeds to benefit accelerate brain cancer cure

Justin's Quest on the CBS Early Show

Thirteen-year-old Justin Friedlander appears on CBS Early Show on April 2 shooting hoops for all of those diagnosed with a brain tumor.

In March 2009, Justin was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor called an optic nerve glioma. He and his family were devastated by this life-changing news; however, Justin decided to take action and now he is on a mission to find a cure for brain tumors.

Justin's Quest is to shoot 63,000 baskets, one for every person diagnosed with a primary brain tumor each year in the United States. In addition, through Justin's Quest, the Friedlanders have a goal to raise $250,000 for brain tumor research through the National Brain Tumor Society.

On the CBS Early Show on April 2, 2010, Justin shot hoops with anchor Harry Smith, and surprise guest Greivis Vasquez of the University of Maryland Men’s Basketball team. Watch the entire segment below:
