Help me save this rose bush

I inherited a home that had serious over growth that almost completely choked out a large rose bush. I cut back 3/4 of the rose bush because it was dead and added some homemade rose food and watered. One of the cains is very tall and bendy from pruning dead branches, it has growth up top but there is no new bud eyes bellow it to cut it back to. I dont know what I should do. The very bottom of the cain seems to have a canker and is brown, but everything 4 inches above it is green but no bud eyes until you get to the top about 3 to 4 ft away. Would a fungicide help with canker and then maybe it will produce more bud eyes lower? Or is the whole cain just done for?
