Breast cancer

Hello Doctors, My mother in law was diagonised with Breast cancer and the surgery was done on the 19th Jan 2017 . I have attached all the medical reports related to the surgery and the tests done on the tumor. Earlier the treating doctor advised that the chemotheraphy and the targeted therapy has to be done together. But when we told him that the medicines will be purchased by us, he now says that the targeted therapy will be done after the completion of 8 cycles of chemo. Infact again this was quoted as 6 after the surgery. Doctor advised as the pathelogy results came as oncogenes are present, targeted theraphy is required to be given.. My only query is should it be given along chemo or after completion of chemo. It would be very grateful if a medical / radiation oncologist could advise me on what is the correct procedure.  Thanks for your kind help and advise. Regards, Joe
