LifeFlight Eagle established the Sean Gooding Memorial Scholarship Fund in memory of Flight Nurse Sean Gooding, who passed away in January 2022 after a long battle with melanoma.
Sean spent more than 30 years serving the community, where his dedication benefitted countless patients. Sean first worked as an EMT in southeast Kansas, then became a firefighter/paramedic in Lawrence, KS, before taking his first flight paramedic position in Lawrence. After attending nursing school, he went on to work as a nurse at hospitals and flight programs in South Dakota and Oregon before returning to Kansas.
Sean joined LifeFlight Eagle in 2016, where he worked full time at our Harrisonville base. He later took a leadership position at a community hospital in eastern Kansas, but remained PRN with LifeFlight Eagle because of his passion for our program and its mission.
Our hearts go out to Sean’s family, friends and loved ones. Please join us as we continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
LifeFlight Eagle established the Sean Gooding Memorial Scholarship Fund in Sean’s memory. The fund is designated to support critical-care education.
