I cannot even imagine all the emotions that you are going through right now. it is a roller coaster. I can only say that I have been through the cancer journey with my mother many years ago, and that's not going through it YOURSELF.
First let me just list some links that you can explore when you feel like it. They might have better answers on funding and support than I do. And at least a good place to compare your treatment options with other suggestions.

This is one persons story of coping with tongue cancer and has links on questions, coping, treatments, and more:
Ok, with that out of the way......I would recommend Susun's book :Breast cancer, Breast Health." While it mainly is on breasts, it has wonderful info for ALLl cancers on herbs and nutrition and ways to help cope with effects of radiation (eat miso, take burdock tincture, apply st john's wort oil to area, etc). Red clover is known to turn of oncogenes and she discusses that. Burdock is another ally. Yellow dock. Seaweeds.
Drink nourishing infusions to help all of your body systems and wellness--oatstraw, nettles, red clover, violet leaf....
I would suggest having emotional outlets, good support from friends who can let you be 'real" through this......people who will give you hugs and love.
Visualization techniques, guided imagery (there are books and audiotapes on these that libraries may have or can get), TCM (traditional chinese medicine) has also been utilized by many....massage (to help move lymph and support releasing) and energy work through reiki, tai chi, yoga, any form can be helpful too.
