About Love Light
The Love Light Tree tradition began in 1985 with the generosity of Dr. Bill and Coleen Lee, who donated the first Love Light Tree to the WakeMed Raleigh Campus in memory of their son, Matthew William Lee (March 5, 1979 – November 26, 1984). Today, the tradition continues throughout the year as Love Light Tree donations are made in honor or memory of someone special. Each year, the tree is lit by one of WakeMed’s former pediatric patients.

During the Love Light ceremony, the Divine family will share their experience at WakeMed Children's following their son's traumatic injury.
