Patients undergoing a transplant, who have cancer, or are getting cancer treatment, often have a higher risk of getting an infection. Your immune system helps your body protect itself from getting an infection. However, after a bone marrow transplant your immune system is weak and at risk for infection. Additionally, cancer and chemotherapy can damage your immune system by reducing the number of infection-fighting white blood cells.
