Default Wrought Iron repair?

I have an iron support that holds up one side of a porch overhang. It has two 1" square rods, connected with "S" shaped curly pieces of flat iron, typical of w/i fences.

Where one of the 1" rods meets the concrete steps, it has rusted away, so the support relies on only the intact rod.

Is there a way to repair this damage? Epoxy? ideas? ie short of replacing the whole thing

Thanks

Usually, these are decorative not structural. If yours is being utilized as structural, I'd replace and beef it up while your at it.
