Bone marrow failure happens when people who produce a low amount of red blood cells, white blood cells or platelets. Red blood cells transport oxygen to be spread throughout the body’s tissue. White blood cells fight off infections that enter the body.

Bone marrow also has platelets, which trigger clotting, and thus help stop the blood flow when a wound occurs. [1]
