HER-2 positive survival statistics

Hello.  I have been recently diagnosed as follows: Ductal carcinoma, Stage 1 -  1.8 cm.  node negative, Hormone negative, HER-2 positive, Elston Grade 3.  Proposed treatment is Docetaxel, carboplatin for 6 sessions every 3 weeks, along with Herceptin which will be continued for an additional year.  My question is, just for my peace of mind....what are the survival or recurrence statistics with no treatment.  I cannot seem to aquire this information anywhere.  It has been strongly advised that I go forward with adjuvant therapy.  Also, is there any information on treatment with Herceptin alone?  Thanks for any info.  Susan
