I'm not sure I understand exactly what type of treatment you are talking about. If there was no cancer found in the lymph nodes then Chemotherapy (drugs that kill cancer cells) may not be necessary. Radiation is often used either with or without Chemotherapy. Since you did mention HER2 positive your daughter might be given Herceptin (a drug for HER2 + cancers) as part of her treatment.  Kindest regards ....
