how long can you live with 25%lung capacity

My dad has idiopathic pulmanary fibrosis.  Last week we were told he has 25% lung capacity left.  How long can you live with 25% lung function?  He is 72 years old and has diabetes as well.  He was always healthy even with his diabetes.  Can you give me any insight?

Thanks,
Connie and family
