Brief Answer:
Everything seems to be in order

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

As far as I see, she is having a 4 cm tumor in breast with all nodes negative. It is weakly hormone receptor positive.

Hence plan of six cycles chemo, then radiation and 5 yr hormone therapy seems reasonable to me.
Chances of long term control are good.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer further followup queries, if any.
