The cells in bone marrow are especially susceptible to the dangers of chemotherapy because they themselves grow and divide at a much quicker rate than most other types of cells in the body. In many cases, bone marrow transplants are required because too many bone marrow cells are destroyed by chemotherapy. While undergoing chemotherapy, patients will have to submit to several regular blood tests to keep track of how low their cell count can get. These complete blood counts are called CBCs. Changes in RBC's and WBC's depend on the type of cancer, the type and duration of the chemotherapy regimen, and the patient. If CDC's are too low, doctors may administer growth factor drugs to increase cell counts so that a chemotherapy regimen can be sustained in order to combat the cancer. Because of the important functions of the different types of cells, it is crucial that CDC's do not remain low for too long. White blood cells help fight infections, and are especially necessary when a body fighting cancer has a lowered immune system as a result of cancer. Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body and deliver nutrients. A low RBC is known as anemia, and often accounts for the fatigue associated with cancer. If these functions are inhibited by chemotherapy, fighting cancer becomes all the more difficult. The patient can also become more susceptible to infection. This is why maintaining healthy levels of WBC's and RBC's is essential during chemotherapy. Hope this helps.
