KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mike Lane sends many checks through the United States Postal Service, but in 2023, Lane noticed more and more of his recipients were not receiving their mail.

While Lane does his work from an office in Grandview, Missouri, he works for the Florida-based nonprofit A Warriors Mission and the American Childrens Cancer Benevolence Fund. The groups pay utility, water, car, rent and other bills by sending checks directly to the biller on behalf of families with a child battling cancer.

“These families are in serious need of help,” Lane said. “They’re all suffering with pediatric oncology. They all have a little kid who has cancer going through all these God-awful treatments. They’re just overwhelmed, and you can’t blame them.”

Lane started paying more money to send checks through certified mail or overnight mail so he could track the status of each letter.
