HelloCustomer welcome to Just Answer.

I am not sure anything could remove this. But what could be possible is to take a picture (without a flash) of the paper with a digital camera while using a very strong light at the back.

Then use a picture manipulation software to brighten and then increase the contrast and you might be able to read something. Some application even have a color filter that can make them even more different than a simple contract adjustment.

Here is a quite advance application that an perform those trick:
