My Cactus has woody steems yet it is very small. It has very few green leaves. Is it dying? What should I do to save it?

Woody stems at the base are normal for an older plant, but it shouldn't have white leaves. It could be botrytis blight. Since there are so few leaves to start another one, I think I would retire this plant and start fresh with a new one.
