My daughter has asthma and she has a cough and a bad chest? She is 12. Will she suffer the rest of her life?

In brief: Yes and no

Many asthmatics seem to "outgrow" asthma around puberty.
This is not a 100% certainty. It will depend on many factors particularly her allergy profile. Though the symptoms may diminish or seem to disappear in the next few years it may return down the road. Hard to tell. Talk it over with her pediatrician.
