Grandma needs help to survive cancer

Hello everyone! I am so reluctant to be asking for help like this but I am in so much need and I really have to survive to take care of my “girls”!
I am 70 year old grandma and was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in September. I am undergoing chemo and the tumor has shrunk but my oncologist tells me I have a long way to go, this type of cancer is very treatable but very aggressive.
My daughter is permanently disabled with mental illness. She has had quite a lot of breakdowns and hospitalizations. She doesn’t work or drive a car and she is very emotional and depressed about me. Her daughter is 8 years old and counts on me to be stable and patient and take care of her and her mom.
We live together in a one bedroom apartment and I drive a 20 year old car that needs work.
I have racked up hospital bills of $876 and my share of cost for the chemo is $300 each time. I have chemo twice a month.
I don’t like asking like this, I have been an independent single Mom for so long, but I have to ask for help, my credit card is maxed out, my only family has given all they can so pride aside, my girls need me to live!
Any donation you can spare will help big or small and if you cannot donate please send good thoughts and prayers.
I appreciate your help of any kind.
Love and Peace, Suellen
