THE last time Laisa Vulakoro shaved her hair off was when she was wheeled into surgery to remove a life threatening brain tumour.
And in the Vude Queen's own words, the promise she made to lose all her hair again for the WOWS Concert for kids with cancer left her feeling physically "sick."
But Vulakoro stayed true to her promise and went bald again last night in front of hundreds of fans who gathered to watch the WOWS Concert.
Vulakoro was supported by her three sons - Justin 29, Netani, 20 and Lote, 4 - who also went under the shearers for the WOWS Concert.
Speaking to The Fiji Times Vulakoro credited the selfless acts of her sons and the thought of it being for a good cause as the driving factors behind her bold move.
"It was a very emotional moment when I was up there and it brought back memories of when I was being wheeled into surgery four years ago to remove my brain tumour," she said.
"I was dreading shaving my head again and I had emailed my friends saying I was numb and I was feeling sick."
"The past two days I had these really bad headaches all because of the thought of losing my hair."
"But when my sons told me that they would shave their heads with me I felt much better. That gave me the energy and the courage to go on."
Vulakoro said she was indebted to Taholo and Sina Kami who began the WOWS charity after their daughter Tae tragically lost her own battle against cancer.
"I just believe that this is a cause that everyone should support because it's a way to help kids who don't have the resources and losing my hair is a small price to pay for that ," she said.
The WOWS Concert for kids with cancer featured performances from regional singing sensation Vanessa Quai, Malumu Ni Tobu and Cadra Ko Muana.
