As long as the one kidney your daughter has works properly she should be fine. You only need one to live.
I only have one kidney that works since I had a transplant. My dad only has one since he gave me one of his. We are both fine. I am 28, and dad is 62
Bob Dole only has one kidney since he lost one when he was seriously wounded in WWII. I think he is nearly 80 years old.
I also know a guy who is in his 40s who was born with only one kidney, and it has never caused him any problems.
I think your daughter will be fine.
