This is unfortunate, since this will be incurable. You can treat the disease, but eventually it will kill the tree.

As far as what to feed them... Any well balanced fertilizer will be fine once per year. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/hawthorn/growing-hawthorn-trees.htm
