Help A young mum beat breast cancer

Two months ago I was a teacher chasing dreams for my family. Unfortunately our world came crashing down with devastating news.
I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma 12cm which was also double hormone positive breast Cancer. It unfortunately is aggressive- stage 3 and has spread to my lymphatic system as well. Since the diagnosis I have had to have both my breasts removed ( bilateral mastectomy, axillary clerance and reconstruction)  and start my treatment (chemo and radiation therapy, plus hormone therapy for 5 years) to beat this horrible disease.
in process of this my husband has had to stop working to care for our two young children who are aged 1 and 2 plus my teenage son as well as me.
Because we are from New Zealand we are not entitled to any financial assistance here in Australia and having to use our savings to buy a house we were left with no money for just in case. With two babies as well, saving money was non existent. 
We are at a stage where  I’m concerned where the next meal or bottle of milk will come from as there is no income now for two months. The little we did have is running out.
This stress is affecting my treatment as I worry about or next meal, next bill while try and fight this terrible illness.
We are hoping to raise enough funds so we don’t loose our house, cars, not have our utilities turned off and be able to provide  food on the table. This is all aside to the raising cost of my medication and other costs related to my treatment over the next 6 months
