About the Hambleton Project

When a woman learns she has cancer, she has questions, fears, and assumptions about what lies ahead. As a lesbian, she may have added stress and questions about how the medical system will respond to her needs and to the involvement of her support system.  A lesbian without active support faces even greater challenges.

The Hambleton Project has been a resource available to help with these issues.  This was a vision held by Sharon Hambleton, who passed away from ovarian cancer in March 1997, when she was 54.  Sharon received help from the Mautner Project for Lesbians with Cancer while undergoing treatment in Washington, D.C. She envisioned a similar support network in the Portland area.  Sharon initiated this project before her death.  Her vision continues to be realized by her friends and other interested individuals, in honor of her life.

April 2007: It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors of the Hambleton Project announces the closing of this historic organization. For further information, please read our letter to the HP membership.

Join us on June 10th, 2007, from 3-5PM at the Ecotrust Building in NW Portland, to Celebrate HP's 10 years of service to the lesbian community. RSVP required. See the invitation for additional information.
