"Promise you won't leave me, will you, Mommy?"

"Of course not, I would never leave you, Darling,

I promise. And a promise is a promise!"


      Edwarda O'Bara was a vivacious sixteen-year-old and a mild diabetic. During the early morning hours of January 3rd, 1970, Edwarda woke up shaking and in great pain because the oral form of insulin she had been taking wasn't reaching her blood stream.

Edwarda was rushed to the hospital emergency room and as she lay in her  hospital bed sliding in and out of consciousness she turned to her mother Kaye and said, "Promise you won't leave me, will you, Mommy?" Kaye looked at her frightened daughter and said, "Of course not, I would never leave you, darling, I promise. And a promise is a promise!"

Those were the last words that were exchanged before Edwarda quietly slipped into a diabetic coma.

For 42 years, Edwarda lived her life in a coma, and Kaye lived her promise of never leaving her daughter's side. Kaye kept a vigil at Edwarda's bedside,
caring for her every two hours, twenty-four hours a day, for the past 38 years till Kaye passed away on March 7th, 2008

She maintained this grueling pace during these 38 years and did not sleep for more than 90  minutes at a time. As a devoted mother, Kaye chose not to institutionalize Edwarda, but rather to care for her at home and assume the tremendous financial burden that accompanies personally caring for a comatose child.

After Kaye's passing. Colleen O'Bara Edwarda's sister cared for Edwarda in the family home till Edwarda passed peacefully on November 21, 2012


The strength, power, and tenacity of Kaye O'Bara's incomparable love has attracted modern day miracles, including the appearance of the spiritual apparition of The Blessed Mother,  who appears frequently before Kaye in her home. 

The message from The Blessed Mother to Kaye is not to despair, that Edwarda has chosen this state as her means of expressing her purpose on earth. Edwarda's mission is to create awareness and to bring comfort, hope, and compassion to those in need.

People around the world who have experienced pain and suffering have reported that Edwarda has appeared to
them, often taking their pain and leaving them with a spiritual sense of comfort and peace.

Dr. Wayne Dyer has chosen to help the O'Bara's by writing of their story in a book titled, "A Promise Is A Promise". This book tells of Edwarda's life, the numerous challenges the  O'Bara's have faced, as well as the miracles that have occurred, including the appearances of the Blessed Mother.

A positive change in the world begins with each of us individually, and by helping others you are actually helping yourself!
