Provided that your Wordpress login is an Administrator one, you should be able to install a backup plugin such as Updraft Plus that will backup the site and allow you to restore the site from a new hosting account where you have full control.

Do you have control of the domain name so that you can point it to a new website host?

Do you have any active email accounts set up on the web hosting account? If so, you'll need to ensure you manage those before terminating the old account.
