Jamie Inglis, the 7-year old from Kelfield, lost his long battle against neuroblastoma on Tuesday afternoon.
He died peacefully at 2.45pm in hospital in Tubingen, Germany, where he was being treated, with his parents by his side.
Jamie fought a brave battle against his condition since 2009 and his mum Vicky said: “We have been truly blessed to bring such an amazing child into this world.
“Neuroblastoma only seeks out the best. The best is what Jamie is.
“Jamie fought with such dignity and to that end we owed him dignity at the very least.
“We have nothing but complete admiration and respect for everyone involved in Jamie’s care since we arrived here in Germany. The last two months have been the most difficult for Jamie and everyone involved but we have all done everything we can.”
Jamie had a stem cell transplant which was successful, before unfortunately succumbing to pneumonia and a lung infection due to his poor immune system.
Vicky added: “The pain of losing Jamie is horrendous but no more suffering for our beautiful boy.”
