You are entitled to a safe place to live. Check out the NY Landlord Tenant Law I've attached. Your doctor would be the one to ask about the molds. Since you've had it tested, I would provide a copy of that test with the scientific names of the molds so your doctor can best advise you.
If you have difficulty with the landlord check with the attorney general's office or get a private attorney to advise you. Best of luck and I hope you fully recover.

only a doctor or professor can tell you how mild will affect your health please seek professional opinions and discuss your concerns with your landlord.
