MILLERSVILLE, Md., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Travel Advantage Network, a vacation accommodations program, dedicated charitable efforts throughout the month of August to raise funds for Sarah Amodei.

Upon her birth, Sarah was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis, congenital heart disease, kyphosis, spondylocostal dysostosis along with thoracic insufficiency syndrome, restricted lung disease and pulmonary hypertension. To date, she has had an astounding 23 operations, all of which have been successful and possible due to generous donations and the "Rock for Sarah" concert event.
