Luna Lovegood - Chapter 11 - In Which Luna and Her Team Make the Best of Thrombocytopenia

Luna has a persistent low platelet count (thrombocytopenia), I suspect because her bone marrow has been overtaken by cancer cells and does not have room to make platelets. Platelets are important because they help control bleeding and prevent spontaneous bleeding.
Because Luna’s platelets were still low, her chemotherapy was adjusted to a lower, safer dose.
