Help me finish kicking Cancer's ass!!! Please help

A lot of you know I've been fighting cancer for about a year and a half. I've had chemo two mastectomies and reconstructive surgery only to find out it is not gone. It's not all bad news it's just one localized area and either chemo or radiation to get rid of it finally. Unfortunately that keeps me down for about another 2-3 months and I do need help with expenses like transportation food and bills. Though I'm hoping it won't be that long. 
Edited: It ended up being two growths not just one and both biopsies were positive for cancer.
 As of today 7/13/2023 I have two clusters of cells that need to be removed. They are under the left arm behind the breast implant and one  much lower. Beth Israel Deaconess Boston will be doing that surgery in about 2 weeks. Radiation after that. Along with a chemo pill since regular chemo pretty much trashed one of my knees. I have a ton of transportation to bid Boston as well as Dana-Farber which is connected It's still going to be another 2 months at least until this nightmare is over for me. Realistically three. Pet scan showed no spreading so hopefully this is the light at the end of the tunnel however I still cannot work. I'm constantly struggling and I need help. It's very humiliating to have to ask for help especially for this long but honestly I was just left all alone to deal with cancer for years. I am literally all by myself. But I did it I did the 10 rounds of chemo the two mastectomies the reconstructive surgery. I did it all because I had help from complete strangers. Some of which have become very good friends. I will be eternally grateful. 
I need help getting through these last few months especially the transportation. A lot of my treatment and appointments are in Boston and Brockton at this point. I try to put them all together so that either I can get a car for a day or I can Uber all in the same spot. 
Please help me if you can. Please help me get through this last part.. I also have my venmo for more immediate help. (I did have SNAP benefits but they were cut in half when the pandemic was declared over). 
Radiation should only be about 4 weeks and will be local so that won't be so bad. As soon as that's over I'm going to go back to work and hopefully I can put this nightmare behind me. Thank you so much for your support. I promise I will pay it forward. Before I got sick I was trying to be a counselor for those with PTSD from abuse. I plan to do that again. But we can add cancer survivor to my resume. 
I'm asking for what I think I will actually need.. at least for now and it's pretty much a guess
 And though I hate talking about my cancer I do give updates constantly. And I don't write very well so I will probably edit this about a thousand times.
I'm trying to be as transparent as possible without being too pathetic or oversharing though I don't know if I could in this situation. 
I am just incredibly thankful. People have been good to me. I would not be alive without you. And I can't survive without you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 
In addition I'm adding on August 29th 2023 is that cancer is still in the lymph nodes. Which means one more surgery radiation and actually possible chemo but I'm not really willing to do that again so hopefully it won't be that much 

So my fights going to take a little bit longer and I appreciate the support financial and emotional that people have given me thank you so much
