  1. Combined Modality: For instance, surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormonal or immunotherapy may be used alternatively or together for maximum effectiveness.

    So I suppose, you need to choose two therapies appropriate for intial breast cancer, then assuming one is radiation, choose the methods an radiation oncologist can adminsiter.

    I would pick for initial breast cancer: surgery, and radiation, then chemo. Hormone therapy would depend on the cancer type, I think.

    Your question must be in some context, ignoring surgery, so it is hard to help you.
