In brief: Possibly?

If you are referring to cancer chemotherapies, it is theoretically possible that a given chemotherapy drug could be toxic to a parasite.
A quick search of the literature did turn up a class of cancer chemotherapeutics called kinase inhibitors that affects certain signaling pathways in human cells that certain parasites (malaria) require for reproduction in the host.
