Testing Her Faith:  Woman loses childhood home after taking care of sister in coma

Message of  July 21, 2019

Dear Angels:

Just wanted to see how everyone is doing? Sorry it has been a while since I have written but the time has just slipped away from me.

My mom and sister and the Blessed Mother have still been coming to me but to my surprise my dad had also been visiting me. t has been quite a while since I have had a visit from him so it was great.

He just reassured me that he has never left me and has been watching over me all the time. I missed him visiting so very much so it was such a relief just having him tell me.

Things are getting a little better for me I still have all of Edwarda's bills to pay but at least now I don't have to pay for repairs.

I haven't gone by to see the house since I left because it is just so hard just knowing that soon someone else will be living there. But I have my memories to carry me though.

I just wanted to say hi I keep all of you in my prayers Please continue to keep us in yours.

God bless Mary keep Colleen

"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 the past 39 years, Edwarda has lived her life in a coma, and Kaye has lived her promise of never leaving her daughter's side. Kaye has kept a vigil at Edwarda's bedside,
caring for her every two hours, twenty-four hours a day, for the past 38 years!

She has maintained this grueling pace and during these 38 years has not slept 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.


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.

Unfortunately, Kaye passed away March 7th 2008. Her younger daughter Colleen cared for Edwarda every day since she passed away on Nov 21st 2012. 

          How You Can Make A Difference

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!
