my friend has cf

When i was 15 i made friends with a guy with cf,we dated for a while but it diddnt work out so now were just close friends.We`ve always talked about his condition openly,he takes his meds infrotn of me and we try to make it as light hearted a situation as possible.However one day I was in school talking to a girl about my friend and she said ,oh my god he`s 20,my mams friends boy has cf and he will only live to 21.I told my friend with cf what had been said but diddnt directly ask him if it was true or not.All he said was dont worry im not going any where.Im so confused,whats the life span with someone with cf?i read somewhere it was late 20`s max-is this the case for all sufferers?
