MINYAMA'S bravest little battler is starting treatment in Germany that his parents hope will give the six-year-old another chance at life.

Our Lady of the Rosary student James Warrington-Love was diagnosed with high-grade glioma at Christmas and has since undergone two rounds of life-saving surgery with acclaimed Sydney specialist Dr Charlie Teo.

The community rallied to the family's support with fund raising events and an online appeal through Rare Cancers Australia, assisting the family with more than $100,000 to take the youngster for further treatment in Europe.

His father Paul said James was receiving various treatments in Germany that were not available in Australia and was due to start a vaccine procedure similar to one they had planned to obtain in Belgium.

"We are literally taking things day by day," Mr Warrington-Love said.

"We are 100% certain we have made the right decision to come here as a family so that we can give James a chance."

He said James was going well considering the regime of treatment he was undergoing daily.

"He's the bravest person I know," Mr Warrington-Love said.

James now sports a mohawk hairstyle fashioned from what remains of his once plentiful locks and plans to have it dyed in rainbow colours.
