Why are you being evicted, especially if his SS and disability are too much for him to qualify for Medicare? Is your home in foreclosure? If it is your home, I can't think of another reason other than health issues why you would be evicted.

I don't know if the American Cancer Society actually helps people in need, but you might contact them for suggestions.

I'm also confused why with Stage IV cancer you would be considered assisted living. Wouldn't a care facility or hospice be more appropriate?

Hospice is covered by Medicare and covers the medicines he needs to be out of pain. Call a local one now for an evaluation.
