1 in 10 Single for Endometriosis by Gráinne Fahy, Mayo Singer and Songwriter

Grainne Fahy at Midwest Radio

The Endometriosis Association of Ireland were delighted to support Gráinne Fahy in the release of her single 1 in 10 which is about her journey with Endometriosis

One in 10 women have endometriosis, making it one of the most commonly seen gynaecological diseases, yet it is poorly understood and not commonly talked about. Symptoms can begin even before a woman has her first period and they persist throughout their lives – leading to chronic and debilitating pain for some. The Endometriosis Association of Ireland is a voluntary organisation representing the many Irish women living with the condition. Volunteers like Gráinne play a tremendous role in raising awareness and promoting education around endometriosis, not only in Ireland but worldwide.

You can read more about Gráinnes story on her website.

The surgery was nasty to say the least. I had 3 deep keyhole incisions right through my abdominal wall, and ablation done on multiple parts of my uterus. It was over a week of post-op pain and recovery.

But I never thought I'd actually feel tears of happiness well up in my eyes upon hearing my diagnosis - Grade II Endometriosis - I had an incurable chronic pain disease.

But it's the truth; I was so happy. I wasn't crazy. My pain was REAL and there was a REAL reason for it.

Gráinne and Kathleen Chairperson EAI, were interviewed on local radio stations during March around endometriosis awareness and the impact of Gráinnes single.
The Connaught Telegraph covered it in their publication – click to read more.
