The latest book focuses on how Mickey can enjoy the great outdoors without the weather dampening his day, thanks to advances in cochlear implant technology.
After discovering her son Mickey was profoundly deaf in both ears, Wagner made it her mission to help him thrive. This included bilateral cochlear implant surgery when Mickey was 3 years old. Inspired by her son’s hearing journey, Wagner wrote the series to help break the stigma associated with hearing loss.
“Mickey does not let his deafness define or stop him,” said Wagner, who has donated hundreds of books to elementary schools in her hometown of St Helena, Calif. “Though kids with hearing loss may require special technology or accommodations, they are no different than anyone else.”
Wagner is donating 100% of proceeds from the sale of Mickey on the Move Farming to the Joyful Life Cochlear Implant Fund (JLCIF), a nonprofit that provides product financial support and confidence coaching to cochlear implant recipients.
“Michelle’s generous donation will help ensure that additional cochlear implant recipients will remain able to hear with their cochlear implant technology,” said Angela Irwin, founder and executive director of JLCIF.
Mickey on the Move Farming is the recipient of the Family Choice Award, Literary Titan Award, and the Pinnacle Award. The book has received “glowing reviews” from platforms such as Readers’ Favorite, Literary Titan, and Midwest Book Review.
Wagner is a full-time realtor and mom who dedicates her time and energy to charities and events supporting children with hearing loss. She takes pride in assisting families as they work through different approaches to raising a special needs child in a typical environment.
