The Conway Area Chamber of Commerce’s chief operating officer was chosen as the Honorary Survivor of the year and will be the guest speaker at the Lip Sync for Life 2017 event this weekend.

Ed Linck will share his story of battling cancer during the event, which will be 1-3 p.m. Saturday at Simon Park.

The event will also feature "a balloon release in honor and memory of those who have had cancer or are currently fighting cancer" as well as free refreshments from the Centennial Bank grill, organizers said.
