Is Herceptin necessary

My 37 year-old sister had her right breast removed 2 months ago.  Her pathological exam reveals ductal carcinoma with highly differential cell type.  0/11 lymph nodes were positive.  Immunohistological markers are ER+, PR+, Ki67+<2% and Cerb-B2++. Does she need hermone and chemo therapy at all? Does she need Herceptin? What is the prognosis for her?

Thanks and have a nice day.
